The Lacemakers is an Arts Council funded research and development project based on lacemaking folklore, customs and history. It is led by me, artist and puppeteer Daisy Jordan. The aim is to produce a puppetry-led piece inspired by this research.
Before it was mechanised during the Industrial Revolution, lace was painstakingly made by hand, mostly by women & children
