Lace Making with For the Love of Lace
Saturday 04 April 2020
Try your hand at the age old craft of lacemaking. During this three hour adult creative workshop (£18, booking essential) you will be taught one traditional stitch, using modern materials and patterns. You will be taking home something a little different!
Local maker Teresa Wheeler shares her enthusiasm for lace making through demonstrations and shows as ‘For the Love of Lace’ and is a member of The Lace Guild and The Lace Society. Inspired as a child watching lacemaking at the Royal Bath & West Show, Teresa enjoys using antique and vintage lace tools to keep the art of lacemaking alive and inspire others.
This workshop is one in a programme of Saturday creative workshops for adults taking place at Chippenham Museum every month until May 2020. Please note tickets are non-refundable and are available from www.neeld.co.uk.
Chippenham Museum is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm. The museum, a Chippenham Town Council facility, is free to enjoy with two floors of galleries to explore.
