Sunday (Monthly) Bobbin Lace Making - Daytime Mixed Lace Classes (Effingham, Surrey).



This is a regular course which runs on a Sunday, once a month as listed, until August after when it will cease - please see additional Saturday dates as a replacement class. The price shown is for a single one-off lesson as the cost of a term is based upon its length and therefore can vary. To be able to learn to make lace and to progress, it is essential that you can understand, speak, and read English fluently, otherwise you will struggle to even get beyond the basics of the craft. Whether a beginner or an experienced Bobbin lace maker, enrolling in this regular monthy class will provide you with the opportunity to work on & 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 practice. 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 displays, showing a variety of items Tina has made, 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.
