In the Loop

Nayan and I were selected to present a paper about Mirrie Lace at the conference, In the Loop, which is at the Shetland Museum and Archives from 1st to 2nd September. Unfortunately Nayan can't travel up for it, so I am on my own. I am very glad that some of the Mirrie Lace knitters will be present, as it wouldn't feel right to be doing the paper without them. You can find out more about the conference on the Southampton University web site:

Mirrie Lace Exhibition Photos by Mark Sinclair

Mark Sinclair took some wonderful photos of the exhibition at Bonhoga Gallery in July. I really like the way that he has captured a relationship between the lace projections and the architecture of the building. These photos have helped me see the work with greater perspective on this relationship and thus our aspirations and intentions for the work in Mareel. I'll try to get them up on our Mirrie Dancers Flickr site. Here's some to whet your appetite!
