BOBBIN LACE with Glenna Dean

July 21, 2018
10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Emulate the dainty work of cloistered ladies of yore with punched paper, linen thread, and straight pins. We’ll use these simple tools to create at least one sampler in the Torchon Lace tradition that can be made into an attractive bookmark. 

Instructor will provide all material:lace “pillow” with bolster; straight pins; 7 pairs of pre-wound bobbins; 2 pattern prickings; bookmark sleeves; handouts

Glenna Dean holds advanced degrees in archeology and botany and is trained as an archeobotanist. She specialized in the identification and analysis of pollen grains from archeological artifacts (like grinding stones and pottery vessels), the identification of burned seeds and broken plant parts, and technical analysis of textiles, sandals, and other artifacts made from plant or animal fibers. Glenna's study of these ancient fiber arts makes her a most fabulous resource for all things fiber. Glennas Abiquiu Dye Studio, on the banks of the Chama River, specializes in plant dyes mostly grown or gathered in Northern New Mexico. Period dyes recreate Spanish Colonial colors on heirloom churro wool yarns for colcha embroidery, tapestry weaving, felting, knitting and crochet.
