Lauran Sundin: Wire Bobbin Lace for Contemporary & Traditional Lace Makers @ Go Create! New England
Sep 28 @ 9:30 am – Sep 30 @ 4:00 pm
Lauran Sundin: Wire Bobbin Lace for Contemporary & Traditional Lace Makers @ Go Create! New England

Although Lauran is a contemporary lace maker and will concentrate primarily on contemporary bobbin lace, the techniques, covered in the class, would benefit the traditional lace maker who wishes to make traditional pieces using wire. These techniques can also be used for larger dimensional sculptural pieces although she will cover small-scale jewellery applications. Lauran will explore two important aspects; focusing on the special methods of working with wire will help the student understand the structural integrity inherent to metal and its potential for dimensional design, emphasis on proper tensioning and the technique of working the wire around the pins, in a systematic manner to achieve precise stitches will be covered in detail. Additional she will cover methods for making all those wire ends “disappear”.

Through collected and found objects, plant material and internal processes we will explore the natural environment where we are. I will invite you to be drawn to places and things in nature and use these sensations as starting points to the mark making with natural dyes, and rust dyeing.

We will explore leaf imprints and other mark making with natural materials to integrate with hand stitching and collage. While the dye pots keeps simmering we will explore the possibilities in each sample as the pieces of cloth emerge. Let the marks and colours become starting points for the next step of the creative process.

Let yourself be stirred for more.
