Study, Design and Create

Start Date 28 January 2012
End Date 15 April 2012
Venue The Bowes Museum
Location County Durham, UK

An exhibition of stunning works of art by some of the UK’s greatest makers of contemporary lace. The Study, Design and Create exhibition was inspired by the Museum’s historically significant Blackborne Lace Collection, one of the finest collections of antique lace anywhere in the world. The exhibition was organised in response to a surge in interest in lace, with collections by designers like McQueen, Dior and Valentino as well as the Sarah Burton dress worn by Kate Middleton at her wedding to Prince William earlier that year.
