Throughout April we welcomed audio-visual artist Kathy Hinde back to Bedford to deliver a series of workshops inspired by Bedfordshire’s lace making heritage.

The results of these sessions can now be found on youtube and soundcloud:

Music Box Lace – compositions made in a workshop creating pieces for a music box inspired by the patterns of Bedfordshire lace. At Bedford Creative Arts with Kathy Hinde in April 2012.


Jungulaced Music Box – compositions for a music box sampled and effected using custom software called ‘The Jungulacer’. Inspired by patterns from Bedford Lace in a workshop created at Bedford Creative Arts in a workshop led by Kathy Hinde, with software designed by Matthew Olden.


Colour Music Sequencer – audio visual compositions inspired by the patterns of Bedfordshire Lace, using a colour recognition music sequencer. Created in a workshop at Bedford Creative Arts led by Kathy Hinde with custom software programmed by Matthew Olden.


These workshops formed part of our Lace in Place programme, which this Saturday 5th May will culminate in the unveiling of a new public artwork in Bedford town centre created by artist Arabel Rosillo de Blas in collaboration with the people of Bedford.
