Materials for this program

By Karen Thompson

Handmade bobbin lace, which has been around since the 16th century, is a type of off-loom weaving created atop a “lace pillow” with threads wound on bobbins. Though it might look complicated, all bobbin lace is made with two moves, with four bobbins at a time. Learn the basics of bobbin lacemaking, from winding the bobbins to making four small lace projects, in this introductory class. Colored threads are used to make it easier to see what is happening.

Supplies can be purchased as a kit from the Lace Museum for $135.00 (plus $15 shipping within the continental U.S.). See supply list for details. Please place your order no later than three weeks prior to the first class.
