Join us for a fascinating presentation by Pierre Fouché (aka the lacemaker) about his life and artistic lace-making practice.
Pierre is an internationally respected artist, a lacemaker and a teacher of contemporary bobbin lace.
With a deep respect for technique, tradition, and innovation, Pierre’s practice includes macramé, drawn thread embroidery, alongside traditional art media too: he is equally confident as a painter, sculptor and draftsman. These multi-skills lend beautifully to the creative approach of his classes, which encourage technical, design thinking as well as imaginative flair.
Based in Cape Town, South Africa, Pierre is an internationally respected artist, a lacemaker and a teacher of contemporary bobbin lace. We are honoured that Pierre has designed three special classes to present with Maker & Smith in October 2022.
