Millennium Lace Tapestry

The Lace Programme of the University of Malta, Gozo Centre, in collaboration with the Mediterranean Institute, has set up a project to create a Millennium lace tapestry. This will be produced by Gozitan and Maltese lacemakers and will be put up on permanent exhibition in a prominent public place. Various sites are being considered, including the Malta Arts Centre and the Gozo Folklore Museum.

The lacemakers  feel that this would be a wonderful opportunity for Art and Craft to come together in a unique creative way.  It is felt that it would be very exciting if artists and lacemakers could  join efforts in order to discuss the collective creation of a  huge lace tapestry made up of various designs by different Maltese and Gozitan artists symbolising the age we live in. This would entail a close collaboration in producing this monumental work, which may remain as heritage to posterity.

A meeting is being held next Saturday, 25th March, for all artists and lacemakers interested
in the project, at 12.00 p.m., at the following venue:
University Gozo Centre, Mgarr Road, Xewkija, Gozo
