New School of Lace upcoming intensive workshop is offering variations on Christmas theme, which traditionally ispired numerous lace designs and patterns. Drawing on tradition, but encouraging originality, this workshop presents opportunity to compare two different lace techniques – needle lace and bobbin lace – when applied to a small scale ornament.
The workshop is designed for lacemakers who have taken any workshops or classes earlier this year, or who have previous experience in needle or bobbin lace in wire. Lacemakers will have the opportuity to practice basic stitches, as well as beading and finishing the piece as wearable art or decorative ornament.
The two designs can be used as a template for further variations, which could potentially lead to whole collections of handmade lace ornaments!
This workshop is not suitable for complete beginners.
Basic experience with wire lace (any previous New School of Lace workshops or courses) or previous lacemaking experience in fibre (familiarity with basic stitches – braid, picots) is required.
