Burano is an island off Venice. The old fishing village is a Legoland of colour. We wandered around the canals on a quick ferry trip stop-off between Torcello and Venice. Local families sell their handcrafts of lacework, carnival masks, glass and pottery through small shops.
We chatted with an old woman working on some lace designs who said great patience was needed for her craft. She also said her hands and wrists were sore and her fingers curled. Scratch the surface.
