Crochet Lace Trees

We are looking for crocheters of all skill levels to help crochet lace panels for our large scale public lace art project to be installed this year at Stockwood Discovery Centre.
 

The sculpture, “The Trees” have been commissioned by The Culture Trust and funded by the Arts Council.  The project consists of two 3m tall x 5m wide hand crocheted lace trees inspired by our lace collection. 

This will be the artists Choi Shine Architects  first new work in the UK, following their  previous projects created in Amsterdam, Australia, Belgium, the US and Dubai. These projects were seen by 1,500,000 visitors with many more viewings from online visitors and publications.
