Lace is the first in a sequence of three films, together forming a new screen version of Brocade. Lace was shot on location at MYB Textiles in Ayrshire, the only producer in the world to still manufacture patterned lace with original Nottingham Lace Looms. Here, human movements align and juxtapose with the choreography and soundtrack of the machines and voice.

Rope is the second in a sequence of three films, together forming a new screen version of Brocade, born out of a desire to explore the alchemy that occurs when movement and sound are combined. Rope features Welsh violinist, Angharad Davies, her approach to sound involves attentive listening and exploration beyond the sonic confines of her instrument, her classical training and performance expectation.
