The history of lace making in Scotland goes back over 300 years. It was not until the middle of the eighteenth century that Anne, Duchess of Hamilton, who saw lace makers at work when travelling on the Continent, decided to provide employment for the women of her own country by introducing the art of lace making. The Duchess brought over women from France and had them teach the girls in her schools how to make “bunt lace,” as it was called." 
 " I was lucky enough to meet one of the lace makers from the Bon Accord Bobbins Lace Group from Aberdeen, the wonderful Evelyn Currie, who told me a lot about her passion that she has been cultivating for nearly 40 years. In my mural design for Aberdeen, I used one of her lace projects as an inspiration, depicting a Scottish thistle. The Scottish thistle is the national flower of Scotland, a symbol of pride and resilience of the locals. ": shares Nes with us
