"It was a fantastic experience to work together with somebody specializedin drawing lace patterns. I now understand how a Leavers loom works and where the difference lays between mechanical weaving technique and handmade lace. I had the opportunity of trying out various yarns which I usually can't use for handmade lace; it was amazing to find out how many possible variations there were based on one single drawing."

"Since the Skills tour on interactive textiles, I feel like I have come away bursting with ideas. It opened my eyes to some new possibilities in materials and in the methodology behind concepts and products. It made me think in a new way - how can the product better benefit the user (rather than the designer forcing their vision on to the end user) and how technology can aid and enhance this user experience."

"I am very moved by the work of Iris Van Herpen. On the other hand,the Lace Effects 1 & 2 exhibitions were very fascinating to me from a technical point of view. Some artists incorporated new design processes based on computer technology."
