Last Saturday artist Arabel Rosillo de Blas and 20 enthusiastic members of the public created lace on a scale never seen before. Working in the macro they became human pins and bobbins in an active afternoon that was part craft, part choreography; as one participant noted, like horizontal maypole dancing.

Local film maker Tom Wild was there to capture the events of the day.

You can also check out the photos tweeted with the #lacebedford hashtag, and don’t forget our facebook page.

The event was part of our Spring commission Lace in Place, which is inspired by the rich history of lace making in Bedford. Arabel is collaborating with a wide range of local people to create a large lace sculpture which will adorn the derelict building at 1 St Pauls Square in Bedford town centre.
