Lacemaking demos at museum


Expert lacemaker Sue Morgan, seen above, will be demonstrating the art of lacemaking to visitors at Fairlynch Museum in Budleigh Salterton during the month of August.

Showing off the centuries-old skill which has made East Devon famous, she can be seen at work on intricate pieces of delicate lace which never fail to impress visitors.  

“People are fascinated when they see me at work,” says Sue, who has been making lace for over 30 years. “They’re taken aback at first, and surprised that the craft is still alive. I’m always happy to answer questions about it.”

Sue will be demonstrating her skill on Fri 7, 14, 21 and Mon 31 August in the Lace section of Fairlynch Museum, between 2.00 and 4.30 pm.

Admission is free.
