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!
New courses started already and workshops are scheduled for January, February and March… The list of activities is growing, and the ideas are shaping for the future. To accommodate the growth, I have reworked the website and gave New School of Lace bigger and better organized space, so all the information will be easier to find. Have a browse, and please let me know if you experience any difficulties with navigation.
Maybe you will get inspired to sign up for a class or two 🙂
