Description: If you have ever wanted to make irish lace but weren't sure where to start, this is the class for you!
Class 1: During the first session we will make our border, learn about padding cord, how to read motif charts and work on basic motifs.
Class 2: This session is all about motifs. We will make second level motifs, and learn how to tack our motifs and border down and prep for the fill in.
Class 3: This session is all about fill in. We will be making the background lace work for our shawl. We will learn basic fill in techniques as well as how to finish our piece.
For this class you will be provided with a set of free source motif charts for various flowers and butterflies as well as guidance on motif placement. As the project shawl is large we will be learning the techniques one at a time in class and there will be work that needs done at home, for this reason each class is two weeks apart to allow time for homework to be completed. I will be available to answer any questions that may arise between classes as well.
