For those who love hand made lace.
The Braid Society is offering two bobbin lace courses at its conference in July. Kim Davis, a well known teacher at IOLI events will be teaching wire lace and lecturing on early lace. Junko Samejima, a respected Japanese bobbin lace artist and teacher will be teaching a new approach to torchon lace designed to create complex geometric designs with a reduced number of bobbins. Junko Samejima is a well-known teacher in Japan who rarely, if ever, teaches in the US, although she had a New York gallery show in the 1980s. Because both of these classes are intermediate level bobbin lace classes, and not too many people in the Braid Society are intermediate bobbin lacers, these classes have not filled and may be canceled unless bobbin lacers sign up for them. It is a rare opportunity for bobbin lacers to take a class with these desirable teachers.
