Beautiful Lace

This is the beautiful work of Bedford-based artist Arabel Rosillo de Bias, who has created this stunning lace installation/sculpture in the windows of
Number One St Paul's Square in Bedford. It's part of the work of the Bedford Creative Arts team, who are working to continue the long-standing lace making tradition in Bedford and ensure the younger generation are able to carry on this beautiful intricate tradition.

I've been lucky enough to watch Arabel weave her magic when she was lace making at a WI 'stitch & bitch' night, and it is truly remarkable to watch, the work looks so complex and intricate!

I love walking past this building daily & admiring her beautiful work!
