The show is a part of Top Drawer, a trade show covering giftware, fashion, print and interiors. It’s tag-line is ‘Re-defining Handmade’ and I was so pleased to be a part of that. I make my lace myself in my Nottingham studio, using technology and vivid shade to give a contemporary edge to an age old product. Sometimes people ask if I make the lace myself, meaning by hand. I hope that my explanation that I design the motifs and then use machines to make the lace doesn’t disappoint them too much.
I hope that my lace really does re-define the term ‘Handmade’
