Tina wishes to offer evening sessions to students (weather; Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced), were this would suit them better than a day-time class, the chance to work along side each other to create a Traditional or Modern piece of lace. You may have found the last 18 months very challenging and being creative is good way to relax at the same time as stretching your cognitive skills. Tina's students often say how therapeutic lace making can be, she herself finds it a great way to relax and forget all about her worries.
Beginners will be guided through the preparation & basic techniques of lace making, with a view to moving onto simple projects once you feel confident. Tina has equipment that can be borrowed before you buy your own, so that you can decide what suits you. You will practise your basic stitches both in class and given next steps to practise at home before the next session. You will also be able to see what others are making and gain inspiration, for later on in your lace making ventures.
Intermediates & Advanced Students can either come along with a current project, or why not try one of the following laces that Tina is offering to teach:- Binche, Bedfordshire, Chrysanthemum, Flanders, Honiton, Idrija, Milanese, Russian, & Torchon. Tina can also provide good detailed guidance to those wishing to start;- Buckspoint, Hinojosa, & Duchesse/Withof.
Once 'Covid Restrictions' are lifted, Tina will be offering displays of her work, and encourages students to bring in examples they have worked or collected; in not only lace but other crafts too.
