Handmade lace designers and lacemakers have always been inspired by nature, and flowers in particular. Blossoms small and large are depicted in infinite variations in every lace in every country, so much so that it is hard to find a piece of lace that would not have any flowers in the design. Lace flowers are delightful to make, from simple flowers for beginners to the most complex masterpieces of highly skilled artisans. This workshop introduces basic plait and leaf tally variations and opens a door to the breathtakingly beautiful world of delicate lace blossoms. Enter and let the nature inspire your creativity and guide your fingers…
