Once again the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney has put together an amazing exhibition.
I saw it yesterday as part of my new job and thought I would love to go again…. but why go along when I can take you too.
The exhibition is entitled Make Lace Not War and it covers not only traditional textile lace (done in more predictable ways) but also very modern lace made with anything from metal to animation to paper and all things in between….even human hair!
This show really challenges our lace ‘box’.
It is made up of spectacular works created in part for the international lace awards, but also includes a hands on experience in the Lace Study Centre. (a fixture in the Powerhouse which you may be unaware of).
We haven’t had a harrysdesk excursion for over a year, and I thought this was a great one to ‘get back on the horse with’ ….so to speak.
So I invite you all to join me in front of the Powerhouse Museum at 10:30 on Tuesday the 20th of March and we will look through together. We will follow it up with a coffee together afterwards if you have the time. I will need to leave by 1pm to pick little people up from school…maybe you will too.
The show is free after admission to the Powerhouse.
Let me know if you can make it so I can look out for you.

This is not one of my usual commission pieces. But it was a very special one.
During my time in fashion College and for some time after, I was ‘gainfully employed’ making all things wedding. This is my first wedding involvement in ages!
Not that surprisingly, Cathy’s wedding pieces aren’t made from ties… the other photos are purely to show you some other beautiful things I had no hand in.
I love this weddings feeling of joy.
God bless Taire and Josh in their new beginnings together.
Ben Adams is now my newest favourite photographer …. currently residing in Australia.
I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I did.
