This workshop is for those who wish to pursue designing, applications and finishings of wire bobbin lace.

Skill level:

Prerequisite all three previous workshops WIRE BOBBIN LACE FOR CONTEMPORARY & TRADITIONAL LACEMAKERS, TWO LAYER 3 WAYS and LINEN are required.

Covered in Workshop:

  • Understanding the value of using paper patterns as mock ups for dimensional work.
  • Distorting grids to form shapes.
  • Experimentation using various other types of wire in addition to copper.
  • In-depth methods of starts and finishes.
  • Intensive investigation in using applicable support systems for stability depending on size of finished piece.
  • Thinking three dimensionally. Extensive analyzation of structural integrity of the wire lace itself to understand the necessary support systems required.
