The four day workshop would be an ideal opportunity to relax and 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 that lace you have always been meaning to try.
Tina has 28yrs experience in making bobbin lace, able to teach;- Binche, Bedfordshire, Chrysanthemum, Flanders, Honiton, Idrija, Milanese, Russian & Torchon. She is also able to provide guidance to those wishing to start;- Bucks-point & Hinojosa, Duchesse/Withof.
If you have any questions do please get in touch for more information.
Tina has also mentored a student through Lace Guild 'Foundation Assessment' for Torchon Lace and is also willing to mentor anyone wishing to do a Lace Guild Assessment.
Tina has passed her City and Guilds teaching qualification and has regular classes at various locations around Surrey. Last year Tina made lace for Pinewood studios, and taught the actresses on the Black Naricissus for the BBC.
Why not come along and work on your existing project and have help/guidance with any problems that may occur, or have you always wanted to try one of the above laces?
Tina is willing to start you off with a new, or existing, lace technique. This will in involve helping you to start, from the beginning, so that you know what to do & are in control of the lace, with small sample pieces and gradually building up to you being able to work the pattern that you have envisaged doing. 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. I am also holding other mixed and specialised workshops later in the year, but always very happy for you to bring your own lace to any of the workshops.
Beginners are always welcome and will commence with what is traditionally your first piece of lace. This will show the two stitches that are required for bobbin lace making. Once you can work these stitches, you will be able to move onto something more exciting. The different laces use these two stitches, along with different techniques to achieve the various effects and patterns, just like knitting.
