Edging out was the title of my contemporary lace exhibition at the Harrogate Lace Event at the weekend. I showed some of my contemporary lace including the ‘Cloths of heaven’ trilogy based on the W B Yeats poem of the same name, from which the detail in the image comes. As well as some of my free lace hangings and necklaces, I also showed some of my Bedfordshire style bags. Several people were interested in the design ideas behind the work and also in the silk paper used in the Cloths of heaven. Others were just impressed by what could be done with lace techniques. My favourite comment came from an art student who said ‘I’ve never seen lace like this before, it’s amazing’.
