What you'll learn in this lace class:

Bobbin lace is a lacemaking technique in which lengths of thread wound on bobbins are twisted and braided. As the work progresses, the lace is held in place with pins in a lace pillow following a pattern. In this class, students will learn the basic fundamentals of Torchon lace and how it's constructed. We will be focusing on Half stitch, Linen stitch, and Whole stitch techniques, while constructing a simple bobbin lace sampler. Students will also work towards making a simple Torchon tape lace. 

Our classes are designed to focus on a learned skill rather than a final product. At TAC, our mission is to provide skills and knowledge for a lifetime! All materials for sample making and learning the technique are included. Any additional materials will need to be supplied by the student based on their vision. 

This One Day Class does not come with Open Studio time.

Please Note: Wear clothing that can get messy!

Bobbin Lace (One Day Class)
Reviewed by Blagovesta M. on 2/8/2018
It is a pleasure to study with Elena. She demystified for me the beautiful art of lace making and made me believe I can do it. We learned so much about the history of lacemaking, the different kinds and schools, different techniques. Elena is not only very knowledgeable and experienced in this art, she has very pleasant personality and impressive patience- every one of us had her full attention and help. In this only one-day class we were able to make our first ever lace swatches with all important stitches. I strongly recommend this class.

The instructor was great, very knowledgeable and knew how to teach a beginner. Was also very patient. I learned how to make lace! Looking forward to a little more advanced class.

This class was very informative and lots of fun. The instructor is knowledgable and interesting to listen too. In one class, I learned all the basics needed to start creating my own lace. I'm looking forward to her more in-depth weekend programs too.
