A day to be inspired by lace; drawing, painting and using Victoria's techniques with acrylic paints, gold leaf and lace on canvas. At the start of the day Victoria will give a talk about her 'Losing Lace' Project and share her private collection of lace artefacts and pattern books. Ideal for gathering ideas to start a new project.
‘Losing Lace’ Victoria's community based project supported by Arts Council England explored the disappearance of the lace industry in Nottingham. Victoria pieced together the facts, hoping to preserve and celebrate the history of lace making in the Midlands by creating an archive of interviews, photographs, memories and stories connected with the local lace industry. The 20 paintings created were her response to the old lace pattern books dating from 1912.
