Drawing with Lace
with Hélène de Gottal

With this workshop I suggest you consider the lace technique as a drawing medium.


And it is nature that will inspire us ... When you walk in the forest or in the snow, you can see some tracks left by the passage of animals.

We are going to focus more particularly on the footprints of birds, observe them by drawing and interpret them with bobbin lace in a very free way.

We will make an artist's book in order to connect your creations; by sewing the different elements onto the paper, we will approach the setting in space, the volume, the movement and even abstraction.

A fun and simple way to divert traditional know-how and exploit it its freedom through improvisation creating a concertina style notebook.


An invitation to take a walk ... Are you coming with me?
