Competition topic: Freedom in lace
Freedom is a value, a way of life in which we have the possibility to choose and make decisions with which we do not limit the freedom of the other.
How do you feel when you are free? Have you ever felt deprived of freedom, perhaps freedom was even taken away from you? What does freedom mean to you? Is freedom your right, your responsibility, perhaps both?
“Love needs freedom to express all its enchantment,” wrote Paolo Coelho. Similarly, a delicate work of craft such as the hand-made bobbin lace can only express all its enchantment through the love and artistic freedom of its authors.
The works you submit to competition should express your thoughts, feelings, and realisations on freedom, on the experience of freedom. Play with the idea of freedom in hand-made bobbin lace and express it through patterns, techniques, colours, and materials. The decision is yours, make it freely.
