Saturday 5th May saw the unveiling of Lace in Place, an extraordinary new public artwork for Bedford. The lace will adorn the exterior of 1 St Paul’s Square throughout the summer and is the result of months of hard work by artist Arabel Rosillo de Blas and the many local people who joined her dedicated team of lace makers.

The work has already attracted attention, with hundreds of people attending the launch event on Saturday.

Here’s a round up of reactions and photos from Twitter, and there’s more via the Bedford Creative Arts Facebook page. The image above is by Richard Davies.
