My new arts project for 2021 celebrating the Nottingham Lace manufacturing industry in Erewash, Derbyshire following on from the success of my 'Losing Lace' project. We have already been lucky enough get the ‘Legacy of Lace’ off the ground this has only been made possible thanks to public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England, for which we are incredibly grateful. Additionally, the support of Erewash Borough Council, Erewash Museum, Long Eaton Art Room and Crafting Relationships has been vital to the progress we’ve already made with the project. We have 5 amazing resident artists lined up who are keen to inspire the community through their work – from painting expanded lace patterns to bobbin lace design, photography, illustration and abstract architectural paintings. But there’s a lot more we want to do! We are hoping to secure a sixth resident artist – a sculptor – who will, quite literally, add an extra dimension to the project. We also want to deliver community lace art workshops & a Lace Arts Trail around Erewash in the summer. To find out more & support our Crowdfunding campaign please follow the link below, any donation large or small will be gratefully appreciated, we'd love you to get involved in the project!
