We had a great time last Sunday at Debbie Bryan’s Studio and Shop for a tea party with Nottingham Lace theme.
Mr G Hurt MBE from Hurt and Sons in Chilwell, gave a great talk on the development of hand-frame knitting and lace in Nottingham. He was really interesting and funny, in a self deprecating way. He brought along some beautiful samples of garments and fabrics made in his family’s factory over the years.
We showed our Nottingham Lace inspired napkin rings, doilies and bookmarks, and other more established designers like Katy Almond were showing lace inspired collections too, check out her gorgeous ceramics. Apologies for the shaky iPhone snap!
