Cándida's Lace

With Mariña Regueiro

Cándida García Irajudo was a lace designer and teacher in Seville during the first half of the 20th Century. Her beautiful designs were greatly admired not only because she made fashionable Art Nouveau and Art Deco laces but also because they were fun to make.

In this workshop Mariña will introduce you to Cándida’s special style of bobbin lace and guide you through some of her unique stitches and work through one of her most beautiful patterns.
