Lace, Petticoats & Lingerie
This work draws upon both tradition and contemporary models of lace & underwear production, signifiers and cultural views of social behaviours, intimacy & exposure. The forthcoming exhibition at the Cass Gallery in 2012 (alongside other practitioners including Mah Rana, Flora McLean Vincent, Simone ten Hompel) will include samplers, piecework and garments for outerwear/ underwear.
Petticoat Lane: Past
Petticoat Lane: Present
Drawing upon Petticoat Lane and the Aldgate area, relevant research archives and the Wonder of Making symposium (‘feminine and making’), I am combining traditionally feminised crafts (such as lace-making, whitework, needlepoint etc) with emergent technologies such as 3D printing, SLS, 3D scanning to map and exhibit changes in gender roles in manufacturing.
