Bobbin Lacemaking Summer School

This Summer School offers a rare opportunity for a time of total lace making indulgence in which like-minded students come together to extend their bobbin lace skills and knowledge in a relaxed but stimulating atmosphere. It is suitable for students of all levels of experience, including beginners.

Pompi Parry, who has been teaching lace making for over thirty years, can teach a wide range of both traditional and contemporary techniques, so there is always something new for students to try. Alternatively, students can choose to work on an ongoing project with Pompi’s help.

Two of Pompi’s specialities are Polychrome Blonde, a silk lace from Normandy, and Downton Lace, a traditional lace from Wiltshire, but Pompi can offer tuition on many other different techniques as well (please note, however, that Honiton, Withof and Duchess laces will not be taught).

Pompi gives lectures and teaches lace making in England and the USA, has exhibited internationally, and has demonstrated lace making in France and Japan.

Students will be expected to provide their own lace making equipment. This can, however, be provided for beginners by prior arrangement.

Led by: Pompi Parry

Please arrive by noon on Monday. Course ends with lunch on Sunday.
