Home and Away

Time for work and time for play enables one to keep a balance – exhibitions, festivals and conventions keep me in touch with what is going on in the rest of the world.

Work in two exhibitions in the UK in 2017 - with Bournemouth Arts Club at Christchurch Red House Museum, Dorset, and with 98 Lace at Mount Grace Priory, Yorkshire - includes banners created in response to architectural settings away from home territory.

A return visit to teach for the International Organisation of Lace Incorporated (IOLI) in Philadelphia will allow me to catch up with the bustle of the American Lace world, while the beauties of Croatia will be the setting for the international lace festival in Pag, where I will be exhibiting with my dear friend and colleague Denise Watts.

Last year saw us in Arenys de Mar, Catalonia, and at Kecskemét in Hungary, the latter affording the opportunity to visit Budapest first. Both brought us lasting memories of wonderful skills and rich cultures.
