A Lace Meditation: 3D Lace Dome
with Theresa Kelly

For the first time Theresa shares her own innovative technique of creating 3 dimensional Carrickmacross Lace which she has developed and perfected over the last number of years. 

 

The 3 dimensional dome that will be created during this workshop uses Carrickmacross Lace technique, made first on the flat in a traditional style and later applied to a dome using a guipure stitch to form the required shape.  The buttonhole stitch is primarily used, the continuous construction of which Theresa finds hypnotic and meditative. 

 

Theresa hopes sharing her knowledge and techniques will encourage and open a creative space for others to explore and feels techniques learned in this workshop could be adapted for other needlepoint laces.
