This is a regular course which runs on the same day, approximately every fortnight, during term time. The cost of a terms class is base upon the length of the term and therefore can vary.
Whether a beginner or an experienced Bobbin lace maker, enrolling in this regular fortnightly class will provide you with the opportunity to work on and progress your current lace type/project with expert guidance. However, you could try a new Lace Type, tutored by Tina through its various techniques relevant to your patterns. The classes will offer plenty of time to put these new techniques into practise.
You will be encouraged to be proactive in your learning approach. While being supported with the appropriate hand-outs and materials as topics and techniques are encountered.
Classes will offer a variety of different lace type and Tina will bring in examples that she has made if appropriate, along with you being actively encouraged to contribute with lace that you have made along with other crafts. This will offer the opportunity for interaction with other students in any of the crafts displayed.
Attending a class of this nature offers the chance to share tips and experiences that are not found in books, but only from the experience of the numerous renown lace tutors that have supported & guided me.
Tina has over 30yrs experience in making bobbin lace, and able to teach;- Binche, Bedfordshire, Chrysanthemum, Flanders, Honiton, Idrija, Milanese, Russian and Torchon. She is also able to provide guidance to those wishing to start;- Bucks-point, Hinojosa & Duchesse/Withof.
