Tatting is a method of making lace by knotting fine thread; it was popular in the Victorian era, and old patterns are easily found. Tatted lace is very sturdy, despite its delicate appearance.
Learn the basics of shuttle tatting in this 2-hour workshop; a simple cross bookmark will be our goal. We’ll cover pattern reading and develop skills of making circles, chains and picots.
We will also discuss history and learn some hacks. An additional class can be scheduled, if needed. Bring any patterns you love and we will talk about them.
Masks are optional.
