Color in Torchon Lace

with Jean Leader


Jean Leader is a lacemaker, designer and teacher with experience in a wide range of laces. She teaches weekly classes in Glasgow, Scotland where she lives, and longer workshops in other parts of Britain and the USA. Her work has been exhibited in Britain and at international lace festivals in Europe. She contributes articles and patterns to lace-related magazines and has published four books.

This video/DVD will show you how using colors can transform a simple Torchon pattern and provide endless possibilities for experimentation. The first two patterns are designed to show how pairs move through the lace when using different stitches and techniques. This knowledge is then used to control where the colors move in the following three patterns for an edging, a square mat and a bookmark. An additional pattern for a square mat is also included. The instructions assume that you know how to wind bobbins, make a pricking and work the basic stitches, but starting and finishing, working ground stitches, spiders, cloth-stitch diamonds, roseground, footside edge and two different fans are all explained step by step.
