Moon has always attracted poetic souls of artists and artisans, inspiring them to refine their skills in order to express moon’s elusive beauty. And there is no better technique for that than handmade lace – especially needle lace in fine silver wire. This workshop brings together simple buttonhole stitch variations to create a fine filigree, and various beading techniques to add a gentle shine to the moon. While the building steps are quite simple, suitable even for beginners, it is their combination that makes this design unique and visually effective.
Join us for a creative one day workshop, and treat yourself with a special moon pendant, a perfect jewellery to wear on warm summer nights…
