This exhibition by the Textile Forum South West Group showed work developed from artefacts in museums. Several of the artists had chosen lace or clothing as their starting point and it was interesting to see where it had led them. The centre piece of the show was a large circular textile canopy by Sarah le Breton, made of wire including LED lights and using the technique of Irish crochet. Sue Bradley had used black knitted wire lace on one of her garments and Janet Haigh had enamelled images of lace white work and incorporated them with stitch to make modern samplers.
