2-Day Visiting Artist Workshop
Dates & Times:
- Saturday, April 15 – 10am-5pm
- Sunday, April 16 – 10am-5pm
Description: Bobbin Lace is an intricate form of weaving dating back to the 15th Century using small wooden bobbins, thread, pins, and lacework “pillows”. This class is for students with no experience in bobbin-lace, but will be a delightful new challenge for weavers and fiber enthusiasts of any skill level.
Tuition: $225 + $25-$52 materials fee
Materials: All students will pay a $25 materials fee which includes all of the cotton thread for two samplers (and some to take home if any is leftover), foam/fabric for individual lace pillows, and pins. Students have the option of adding 24 bobbins for an additional $27 which will be yours to keep. If you do not purchase the bobbins, we will have some available to use during the workshop.
Location: Contemporary Craft (5645 Butler St., Pittsburgh, PA 15201)
