Stella Adams Schofield joined us this week.She is an artist, teacher and researcher who is fascinated by old textiles and lace. However she began her slide show with microphotographs of skin and explained how she used it as an inspiration. She transferred this idea into very delicate lace pieces .
However she had another slant being very interested in technology, so we were able to see video shown on and through lacey drapes. The fabric that she created were influenced on British production so she wove with linen and wool.
Most of all I loved her integrity. She explained that museums value their shards of pottery but pay less attention to fragments of fabric.
She can be contacted at
Over 20 of us went to the K annd S at Harrogate on Saturday. A very good day, lots to see and buy and as always I spent most of my time chattering to friends that I know.
