Exhibition at Highcliffe Castle

We set up our exhibition at Highcliffe Castle, Christchurch on 4 September. My piece is a family tree - each strand represents a member of the family and they are tied together with red thread to represent ties of blood. Each strand incorporates handmade bobbin lace strips and bobbin lace pieces embedded in silk paper. There are four complementary portraits of family members on the wall - like a portrait gallery in a stately home - each with their own family tree in needlelace. The exhibition is entitled Rhythms and cycles and the other exhibitors are Gail Baxter, Jane Atkinson and Denise Watts. It runs until 26 October 2007.
