Weekend Bobbin Lace Making - Daytime Mixed Lace Workshops (Barnham, West Sussex).



This is a consecutive TWO day workshop which would be an ideal opportunity to relax & make lace enjoying the company of like minded people. Come along and try your hand at one of the laces below or work on your current project, or have help starting a new project. Or why not try a new type of lace, perhaps one that you have been meaning to try for a while? Tina encourages students wishing to begin a new lace type to begin at the beginning. This will give you a better understanding of how the lace progresses & hopefully giving you the confidence to carry on with the project, and build up the techniques required to produce the pattern you would really love to do. Often this will entail working a number of samples initially. Beginners are welcome and will begin with what is traditionally your 'Bandage'. This will show the two stitches, you will be able to move onto other samples once you feel confident with these two stitches. These stitches are like knit and purl in knitting, and are the ground work to achieve the different effects in your lace. 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 numerous lace tutors that have guided me. Tina is willing to mentor any Student wishing to tackle any of the laces mentioned below for the Lace Guild Assessment programmes. Tina is willing to take students who can only attend on a daily or combination of days at the rate of £40 p/d. The tutor also has limited equipment available to loan or for sale and can advise on the purchase of new/additional equipment as required. Tina has been making lace for over 30 years. She is willing to teach in the following lace types:- Binche, Bedfordshire, Chrysanthemum, Flanders, Honiton, Idrija, Milanese, Russian & Torchon. She is also able to provide guidance to beginners wishing to start making;- Bucks-point, Hinojosa, & Duchesse/Withof. If you have any questions, then please get in touch for more information.
