Lace making Lessons

Lace making lessons for all ages and abilities.

Lace Making Lessons by Mainly LaceMainly Lace give a selection of lace making lessons across Essex.   Classes run weekly and are usually 10 week terms.

The classes are a mix of ages and abilities, ranging from complete beginners to seasoned lace makers.  This mix makes teaching a large group much easier than all beginners – who all need help at the same time and the same place – or all very advanced who need extra challenges and more complicated projects.
