Pompi Parry has been teaching bobbin lacemaking for 36 years but as she is constantly updating her own knowledge and experience, there is always something new to learn. Pompi teaches a wide range of traditional English, Continental and Contemporary laces as well as her two specialities of Polychrome Blonde, a silk Lace from Normandy, and her local Wiltshire Downton Lace. (Please note that Honiton, Withof and Duchesse laces will not be taught). Pompi teaches Bobbin lacemaking in the UK and the USA. She has lectured and exhibited internationally as well as demonstrating her craft in Japan and France.

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