Old Flemish Laces – the cradle of all important lace from Flanders
Old Flemish lace already contains the basics for later development up to Binche. Today, when we make bobbin lace, we mainly adopt the way of working from diagrams in books and instructions. This lecture explains the background of why some edges or thread guides are made in a certain way, what actually is a ring in Flemish lace and its origin, and the very exciting connections between old Flemish lace and many modern genres.
