Expanding on the success of the lace applique class, the London Embroidery school is now taking bookings for the Lace series Course. Perfect for practising professionals, students wanting to expand their skills or hobby crafters wanting to learn something different. The course will cover a range of lace based techniques which, once learned, are simple to apply to your own work or garments.
Class 1: Lace Applique. Starting with the original class we will be teaching the application of lace onto delicate fabrics, perfect for use on lingerie and evening wear. Dealing mainly with tension and placement this class will show you a very clever way of covering a lot of ground with pattern very quickly once in your stride.
Class 2: Broiderie Anglaise. This tradition whitework lace technique creates an opaque cut work effect and will teach from applying your desired design onto cotton right through to creating the lace effect and stitches.
Class 3: Limerick Lace. Incredibly delicate needlework lace created by stitching directly into the tulle and embracing the textures and patterns within the tulle itself.
The course is available with and without equipment so please choose your booking accordingly. A stiletto is required for the Broiderie Anglaise Class so if you have one please bring it along, if not they will be available for use during the class and for purchase afterwards or from the website. We will be working on a clamp frame to hold the fabric and leave both hands free to embroider. All other materials and equipment is included in the price of the course for use during the class.
Cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance. Courses are non refundable.
