Mary Elizabeth Barron

Overview
Mary Elizabeth Barron is an artist based in Logan, Queensland who makes bobbin lace from plastic bags.

Works
When I saw this post on Facebook, announcing Barron’s exhibition in Logan, it intrigued me, as I was working with a antique bobbin lace handkerchief made in the 1920s by my husband’s grandmother.

The videos on her Facebook page demonstrate how she planned and wove her River Lace pieces: one for the Albert River and one for the Logan River.
