News: Lace Places — An exhibition by Nottingham College’s Fine Art Students at Newstead Abbey

Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.

This Nottingham Lace Places exhibition, in a suite of intimate rooms at Newstead Abbey, offers you a taste of some of the treasures of Nottingham City Museums’ internationally important lace collection – and the stories behind them.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing stu­dents are; Saz Abdalrahman, Lethicia Anglin, Rayan Benjamin, Lydia Blyth, Ellie Cunnington, John Hancock, Ella Heaton, Elle Innocent, Lizzie Flint, Jazz Freeman, Becky Leivers, Eleanor Oprych, Marita Robinson, Chris Tregenza, Delsha Tucker, Charlotte Walker, Kayleigh Wall and Yang Jiang.

It includes a range of media and techniques including; photograms, cyanotypes, press moulding, ceramics, print making, stitching, assemblage and mixed media. As part of the creative research, a space in the Abbey was converted into a temporary dark room and samples of flora and fauna sourced from the gardens of Newstead became the starting point for light-reactive work complementing the plant and fern motifs evident in the patterns of Lace.

The show also includes moulded fragments of the Adams building as a homage to its part in the jigsaw. Other works touch on the interwoven human aspect of the Lace industry, with human forms intermeshed in a community of labour.
