the video interview with Andrea is fascinating & visit her webpage for more info
there is 130 lace works in the exhibition & they are all so inspiring!
I spent 3 entranced hours in there yesterday and will have to go back for many more before the show closes in April!

      I’m still digesting the experience, loved all the fretworked & filigreed metals, paper, porcelain and wood too! must go back and take more photos as hardly any of the artists have websites!

    Hello Mo, thankyou for this beautiful post. I have been overwhelmed by these amazing works. In particular the (copper ?) torso made up of words, by Elise Benjamin. I am filled with so much emotion by this beautiful piece. The artist describes her work so simply, but with such warmth. Oh I do wish I could see this exhibition. I’m so happy for you, being able to visit this beautiful exhibition. And so happy that you have shared it for all to see. Thankyou so much for the behind the scenes link. Enjoy your second visit. Do you know it it will be travelling to Melbourne? Bye Mo and thankyou. ox
