By the Poor, For the Rich: Lace in Context is a website which brings together lacemakers, researchers, and museums across Europe to develop new knowledge on the regional manufacture and trade in hand-made lace from the 18th to the 20th centuries. The website is run from Oxford University by an anthropologist, Nicolette Makovicky, and a historian, David Hopkin. The website aims to enhance the visibility of existing collections through building an interactive map and data-base of museums and sites where lace is made and displayed. We want to hear from scholars, lacemakers and the general public about their interactions with lace, their own experiences of the craft and their insights into its history. Lace as a high fashion item is well represented in public galleries, but historically lacemakers themselves have been relatively invisible: we want to correct that through our active blog.
