To complement the launching of The Janice Jones Lace Collection in Uralla, NSW, Australia, a video has been produced, Living Art Lace, for lace makers and textile people everywhere, showcasing contemporary lace as a vibrant art form. The makers speak about their contemporary lace art practices while paying homage to lace designers and makers who have gone before them.  Vicky will also describe the challenges of large scale installations. After the video, there will be a discussion with a question and answer session.
