Traditional Spanish Point Lace (Punto de España) of the late Renaissance and Baroque times, had been made in precious metal threads of silver and gold. Numerous royal portraits in major European art collections attest to popularity of this lace in fashion and interior design through centuries. Punto de España patterns  are very suitable for wire medium and offer endless inspiration for jewellery and art object design. This workshop, the first of the Spanish Point lace in the New School of Lace curriculum, offers an introduction to essential design elements of this fabulous technique.
