lythe hill view

My work is mainly inspired by travel and nature. Landscapes, views, flowers and trees are my most common subjects. Sometimes I am inspired by a small detail – the texture of bark, a shell or an interesting leaf. More recently I am enjoying working on local landscapes, dramatic skies and beautiful views. Initially, I like to use unpredictable media such as inks and dyes. I then use a variety of techniques to add detail from drawing and painting to collage and stitch. I am especially fond of free machine embroidery and use this in much the same ways as I draw.

Elizabeth Wade

I have been making and teaching lacemaking since 1981. I specialise in bobbin lacemaking though I also do some needle lace. I do Torchon which is made in many countries and regarded as a good type for beginners. I also do Bedfordshire and Bucks Point which are traditional English laces  and have recently started to learn Milanese , which as its name suggests , is an Italian lace.

I use the traditional white and ecru thread but I also like to work in colour. I also like to do wall hanging, framed work and fans as well as the usual handkerchiefs.

 I was commissioned to write ”Torchon Lace a Manual of Techniques.” which was published in in 1991and has been in print ever since.

 My display will feature samples of a variety of laces and I will have a Torchon bookmark on my lace pillow to demonstrate the techniques which apply to all bobbin laces.

Medium Collage on canvas. Style semi impressionism.
Taken from my work (Venice Mask) .Original painting based on a market stall
display central Venice next to the Grand canal.
This collage started out as a re worked copy of the original in a cartoon genre.
However as work progressed light and shade added with extra detail, hence the
finished work .
