In the centre lies a copy of the famous Vermeer painting, The Lacemaker, which is flanked be a contemporary pastel work of the same name and an abstract screen print based on the domestic interior. Also displayed is the patchwork Quilt made up of 171 individual mono prints all taken from pieces of old lace or embroidery.
