These two workshops have been added to Lenka’s Fall schedule in addition to the one already posted on LaceNews at http://tinyurl.com/kpz62yz.  The main goal of the series is to equip lacemakers with sound skills and thorough understanding of small scale needle lace techniques in different metals, so they can create their own designs and make needle lace jewellery or small scale lace art.

Lenka Suchanek is a self-taught lacemaker and lace designer. She works in the centuries old European techniques of handmade bobbin lace and needle lace, bringing them to life in pictures, sculptures and wearable art. Specializing in metal lace, she uses fine wires of copper, bronze, steel, and precious metals to create unique pieces that are traditional and modern at the same time. Lenka’s work has been exhibited around the world, and received awards and recognition for the original approach to the traditional craft.
