Working from beautiful historical lace examples (yours or mine), we will explore some of the key visual ideas associated with lace and use simple methods to record these as the starting point for our small-scale workbook. To allow us to concentrate on ideas such as marks and textures we will largely be working in black and white but incorporating some colour to provide interest. We will develop these ideas exploring a variety of paper types and weights, inventing as we go, but always within a structure that offers support as well as plenty of room for individual interpretation. Whether a beginner or an experienced worker there should be some challenges, a bit of fun, and plenty of scope for adapting the ideas for work with fabric and stitch. You will have a small-scale themed sketchbook.
