A range of colourful craft items have been created for a special display at Wallington.

As part of Voluntary Arts Week 2015, promoted by the national development agency for the voluntary arts sector, lacemakers in the North East have been invited by Wallington to show a different side of lace by exhibiting along the Centenary Walk in the grounds of the estate.

The pieces for the Lace Gone Wild display include bugs and butterflies, flowers, fungi, owls and squirrels. In addition, there will be lace demonstrations in the glasshouse from today until Friday, May 22.

Ponteland’s Gil Dye, pictured above, is one of the artists taking part. She said: “We’re delighted that Wallington has been so supportive and we’re looking forward to demonstrating how lace items are made.”
