DEMONSTRATIONS

Fraser Coast Lacemakers

Have you ever wondered how fine handmade lace is made?

Come along and watch the art of Bobbin Lace being made. It is an art that is centuries old and is made using surprisingly few moves of the bobbins that can be varied endlessly.

Please come and see how it is done and have a go at it yourself as there will be a ‘Have a Go’ pillow there for anyone interested. You will be pleasantly surprised at how relatively easy it is to do.

There will be a display of traditional lace and contemporary lace for you to compare and admire.
