About this experience

Understand the basics of how to make lace. Learn a basic stitch to make a 'Torchon Ground' lace bookmark.

Handmade bobbin lace, which has been around since the 16th century, is a type of off-loom weaving created atop a β€œlace pillow” with threads wound on bobbins. Though it might look complicated, all bobbin lace is made with two moves, with four bobbins at a time. Learn the basics of bobbin lacemaking, from winding the bobbins to making four small lace projects, in this introductory class. Colored threads are used to make it easier to see what is happening.

All materials for the workshop will be provided with the option of purchasing a 'lace making tool kit' at an additional cost price of $120.
