Bring your Valentine!
A new workshop for new lacemakers – designed with love and understanding, how difficult it can be to leave a comfort zone and start something new… such as lacemaking with wire. I remember clearly my excitement and fear many years ago, when I left the shore of the Old World and its beautiful, delicate fibre laces and ventured into unknown territory in life and lace. I also remember that the beginnings were sometimes hard and frustrating. I am happy to share things that learned along the way and I strive to present them gradually, in accessible and enjoyable form. Slowly, one stitch at a time – because lacemaking nowadays really is about the process. I look forward sharing the joy of creative lace with some of you in Ocean Park!
