Introduction to handmade bobbin lace covers the first steps in lacemaking, that are surprisingly easy. Just two basic moves open door to endless variety of patterns! Gradual instruction accommodates thorough understanding and promotes acquisition of good lacemaking habits. Each lacemaker gets individual attention and instruction takes in account different learning styles. Topics covered in the first course include: introduction to lacemaking tools and materials, winding thread on bobbins, preparing lacemaking template, basic moves of cross and twist, basic stitches – cloth stitch, half stitch, whole stitch; footside and headside; braids and picots. Finished class project can be framed as a lace picture.
