Description
Not everyone has time to make knotted lace or bobbin lace. This class teaches students how to make lovely edgings and insets of lace with a technique that is compact and convenient for travel. This lace is made using a needle, instead of the shuttles used in the Victorian era.  This lace making technique has many theories behind its beginnings which will be briefly discussed during the class.  Students will receive a ball of thread, pack of lace making needles, and patterns for lace edgings to practice with.  Students will also learn about other ways to use this technique in garb and costume embellishment.  Students are asked to bring a pair of scissors.
