Semiahmoo Library is proud to be displaying works by Lenka Suchanek for the months of February and March.
Lenka Suchanek is a lacemaker, lace artist, designer and instructor.
She works in the centuries old European techniques of handmade bobbin lace and needle lace, bringing them to life in pictures, sculptures and wearable art. Specializing in metal lace, she uses fine wires of copper, bronze, steel, and precious metals to create unique pieces that are traditional and modern at the same time.
Lenka’s work has been exhibited around the world, and received awards and recognition for the original approach to the traditional craft.
Lenka’s Way of Lace Studio and the New School of Lace are based in Ocean Park, Surrey, BC.
