A new exhibition is opening at the museum on Saturday entitled Drawing Museum Lace.And in Gomersal, the Spen Valley Flower Club organizes a flower festival:
Teresa Whitfield’s ink drawings of lace are so realistic that they are often mistaken for actual pieces of lace – the process of drawing them is so labour intensive it is more a re-enactment of the lace-making process than just a likeness to the end product.
Her drawings occupy an unusual space between the drawing of an object and the recreation of it in a different medium.
The exhibition is the result of the artist’s many museum visits to research lace collections across the country.
It includes a life size recreation in ink of a black lace shawl owned by Charlotte Brontë [In the picture] (Source)
