We are a group of around 50 lacemakers who meet up once a month to share our love of bobbin lace. We make both traditional and modern lace, using a variety of patterns and techniques. Together we provide a wealth of knowledge and experience of regional styles up and down the country, as well as techniques used around the world. Join us to learn more about this very specialised craft, that’s steeped in history.

Please come and visit us at Living Crafts Hatfield
Thursday 9th to Sunday 12th May 2019
