About the Course

One day bobbin lace workshop with Linda Haylock at Flatford Mill, run by the Field Studies Council.

Learn basic techniques in bobbin lace to produce a wearable piece of lace (brooch/pendant). Techniques include preparing the equipment to start, starting, working and completing a piece of lace and finally mounting the finished piece.

Linda was first inspired by bobbin lace in the early 1980's when she watched a demonstration at a local agricultural show and started learning how to make Torchon bobbin lace at an adult education evening class in 1998. In 2002, Linda was approached by a local group of ladies to teach them and now has 2 other evening classes running. Her passion is continental lace as there is more freedom in the lace with regard to colour, texture and design. Annually, for the last 9 years, she has visited the Czech Republic to attend a 7 day design course in bobbin lace to gain more skills in pattern design and Czech techniques.

Flatford Mill lies at the heart of the Dedham Vale, on the banks of the River Stour near the Suffolk-Essex border. The Centre buildings, particularly the Mill and Willy Lott’s House, are instantly recognisable since they feature in many paintings by John Constable. The rich mosaic of lowland landscapes, wildlife habitats and places of historic interest are all reflected in our extensive programme of courses.

The Centre is located between Colchester and Ipswich and is about 10 miles from each, approximately 2 miles from the A12.
