Bobbin Lace

The Lace MakerI recently visited the Wallace Collection in London’s Manchester Square and was struck by Caspar Netscher’s Lace Maker. The sitter for this portrait was making her lace 350 years ago in the Netherlands in the same way as Mary Worthington is today, in Dinas Cross.

You can see Mary’s work in Len Rees’ Gallery or contact her directly.

About bookvolunteer

I'm passionate about books, about Oxfam and about making the world a better place. When I'm not filling the shelves in Oxfam Wilmslow, I might be found reading the books I've bought in the beautiful surroundings of North Pembrokeshire.
