Kristel Cromheeke, Netherlands
Create a panda in needle lace in the traditional Flemish way. We start from the beginning and build it up with a variety of typical needle lace stitches. The course will be given in English and/or French. Handouts will be given with the necessary explanations. You don’t need any prior knowledge of lace or stitching. You only need to love to work with needle and thread.
Kristel Cromheeke, Netherlands, learned needle lace 20 years ago from one of the last ladies who did this in Flanders as her job. She learned it at school as a child and from her mother and aunt. Later on she learned contemporary stitches from a lady in her eighties in Flanders who learned it in Zele, the center of needle lace in Flanders. Kristel is currently teaching needle lace online for the Kantcentrum in Bruges and currently working on a website where visitors will be able to find the techniques of the Flemish needle lace in lessons and projects.
