During this workshop you will start by covering a brief history of Tatting and its origins. You will then learn about the equipment and threads used, followed by the basics of the double stitch which makes up all tatting. We will also cover picots, joining, reading patterns and sources of patterns and materials. The workshop is suitable for all abilities - beginners will be introduced to the art of tatting, and those who can already tat will develop their skills further. (Please note that the photographs are for illustration only as they show intermediate level tatting.)
All materials and equipment will be provided, and you will be able to keep your shuttles to enable you to carry on tatting after the workshop. Morning and afternoon refreshments (tea, coffee, homemade cake) will also be provided, you will just need to bring a packed lunch.
If you already have your own tatting equipment and would like to use it during the workshop, please let me know when you book and I can refund you the cost of the materials that are included in the course fee.
