Eleanor Calnan designs and makes Carrickmacross lace, traditional and modern, and invites you to learn these hand sewing skills in a 2 hour Beginners workshop.
Carrickmacross Handmade Lace uses a technique of needlework called ‘applique’, the lace being worked by applying fine organdie to a net ground. When stitching is complete the excess organdie is cut away revealing the design. A ‘guipure’ effect is achieved by linking areas of open work with buttonhole stitch. Pops and a picot edging are unique identifying features of this lace as well as various filling stitches.
In this workshop you will learn the basic stitches needed to create a beautiful piece of lace.
A lace pack is required for this workshop which will be available to purchase at the workshop Location
