About the Book
Lace Narratives: A monograph, 2005 – 2015 documents Cecilia Heffer’s innovative lace-making practice over a decade, including major exhibitions and commissions. This publication examines ways that Cecilia’s research practice responds to changing ideas and technologies as a means to extend our perception of textiles. It presents an in-depth reflection on studio practice in a discursive spirit, responding to the question: What has the studio enquiry revealed that could not have been revealed through other modes of research? The book includes photographs of Cecilia's process and final work, as well as essays from Professor Kees Dorst and lace-historian Rosemary Shepherd. Lace Narratives was edited and designed by Zoë Sadokierski as part of the MediaObject book series, published by UTS ePRESS. A 7-minute documentary video accompanies the book and can be viewed at: https://vimeo.com/143092915
