IOLI Lace Lecture: The Community Lacemaking Project

  • December 17, 2023
  • 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
  • Zoom

The Community Lacemaking Project will be a single, large piece of needle lace to be exhibited in Sydney in mid 2024. It will measure at least three square metres. 

A tapestry of small needle lace motifs, designed and pieced together by Maggie Hensel-Brown, but made by hundreds of others. 

The aim of this community project is to introduce the basic stitches of needle lace to a broad range of new lacemakers, work together either in small community sewing groups or via digital instructions, and create a single large physical piece. A visualisation of all of the hands and thoughts and moments that have gone into the stitches.
