While the little men were attending a Minecraft Discovery Session last week at the Powerhouse Museum, I treated myself to an hour visiting the Love Lace Exhibition. With a tagline of Make Lace, Not War I had a feeling it was going to appeal.
Featuring 130 works by 134 artists from 20 countries, it was a truly visual feast. It really extended my assumption of what lace and lace making means and I was so inspired by variety of materials from the traditional cotton to the use of echidna spines and horse hair! It’s been too long since I’ve been to a textile exhibition and it was such a wonderful escape.
These were three of my favourites – they were outstanding both afar and up close. The tree is only just over half a metre square so the detail was breathtaking.
Are you a textile fan? Go visit the exhibition if you get a chance.
