Beginning Tatting

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.
