Tonder Lace Workshop April 2016

Marie Kulchinski hosted a Tonder Lace Workshop with Bobbi Donnelly on April 1-3, 2016 in Hillsborough, NC.  The first day of the workshop was sewing together a beaded lace cuff.  We had made the lace beforehand as homework.  The second part of the class was working on Tonder lace mats that Bobbi has reconstructed from antique Danish lace.  As always, Marie’s studio and hospitality was perfect and Bobbi’s teaching was unparalleled.

Bobbi and Karen Douglas and Michael Giusiana have just published a book of “10 Lessons of Tonder Lace: the Teaching Program of Cathrine Lorenzen”, so we all purchased a copy.
