Drawing Museum Lace: Theresa Whitfield

Teresa Whitfield

Drawing Museum Lace

Bexhill Museum 3 February – 8 May 2014


Characterized by a close resemblance to real fabric, Teresa Whitfield’s highly detailed ink drawings reference a time before the industrial revolution, when hand-made textiles were part of everyday domestic life for women. 


Drawing Museum Lace is the result of the artist’s many museum visits across the country and includes a specially commissioned drawing of a hand-made Honiton lace collar from Bexhill Museum’s own extensive lace collection which can be seen in the Costume Gallery next to the original piece of lace that she drew.
