New Designers

This was an excellent show and I made copious notes and collected loads of postcards and business cards. I picked up lots of ideas for techniques I could use for my net curtain lace, including using pins, staples, ribbons and laser cutting. There was a lot of laser cutting some of it very complicated and interesting and some of it quite simple. I liked the installation by Debbie Smyth of electricity pylons made out of pins and threads, it was very lace like. The work of Lauren Gilberthorpe was also interesting because she uses erotic images to produce repeat designs.
