Friends of Forge Mill Needle Museum Supporting our Local Museum in Redditch

Exhibition - The 98 Lace Group - Sat 2 May to Tue 2 June 2015

In the gallery at Forge Mill Needle Museum was a fascinating exhibition from The 98 Lace Group, a fellowship of lace makers who are united by a common goal - giving lace a modern, livelier public profile.

The exhibition theme was 'gateway' and the group members had interpreted this in a variety of ways – from the spiritual influence of the landscape to the physical deep earth mineral riches we discover, or how the Gateway is a portal to the mind and how we negotiate life's rocky path. The display also had workbooks and details for most of the exhibits.

On Saturday the 30th May visitors could meet the makers and see lacemaking demonstrations at the museum.
