We are pleased to present the 2nd lace|heart|art Challenge and Online Exhibition of Handmade Bobbin Lace in Colour, dedicated to memory of Barbara Jean Jones.
In 2019 edition, a theme of the giving heart is symbolized with a bouquet of flowers.
Simple lace tape outlines the heart shape. Flowers grow from the bottom of the heart and blossom with love. They are wrapped with a bow and offered as a gift, with joy and gratitude for creativity, lace and life.
While the simple heart outline is provided, the blossoms are open to creative interpretation. We invite all lacemakers to fill the pattern with colours and textures, and create truly original flower arrangements. Simple or elaborate, we will accept all heart bouquets, and include them in our celebration.
Read more about the 2nd lace|heart|art challenge and download a complete kit, with a free pattern and working instruction for fibre as well as wire media.
We encourage everybody to try both materials and explore their colour potential.
If you have not participated in the previous edition, you can read the Story of Barb’s Heart and view the 1st lace|heart|art Online Exhibition 2018 with sixty beautiful lace hearts from all over the world.
We are looking forward to receiving your lace|heart|art #2 entries before February 14th, 2019!
