Vintage bobbin lace fishing net

Lace fishing net vintage

Experimenting with bobbin lace built on vintage lace and bright orange/red plastic netting to diffuse colour. Am wanting to recreate the vintage fishing nets giving a nod to the women who brought in more income to their households by crafting and supporting the men who worked down the pits and in heavy industry.
