Bobbin Lace

Bobbin lace making is fun, creative, absorbing and stimulating especially when like-minded students come together to extend their knowledge and learn new skills. 

Pompi Parry loves to share her extensive knowledge of traditional laces and encourages students to be creative and experiment using new techniques and fibres. In addition, this course will include displays, a possible trip to a local exhibition and a visit from a local bobbin maker. 

The course is suitable for students of all abilities, including beginners. Students are expected to discuss with Pompi what project they would like to work ona month prior to the course.  

Students are expected to provide their own equipment. This can, however, be provided for beginners by prior arrangement with the tutor.

The trip/visit would be an additional cost to the participant and is not included in the fee.
