Discover: Delapré Abbey in Lace


- +

by Jackie Poulter

A collection of original lace patters compiled by the author, to celebrate the newly restored Delapré Abbey in Northampton and in conjunction with the Lace Guild Exhibition 'Discovery'.

It comprises a collection of new designs in various lace techniques, based on features and structures found in the building. There are pieces of Torchon, Bucks, Milanese, Beds and Russian bobbin lace, a couple of pieces of needle lace, and a tatted motif. The patterns are accompanied by images of the feature that was used as inspiration, and short pieces of text about it. It is not a teaching book, but there are a few diagrams and some instructions where they will help.
