About the event

RSVP with your email address, and you will be sent a zoom link.

The community lacemaking project is a year long series of workshops, gatherings, talks and online classes that aim to put the basic skills of needle lacemaking into as many hands as possible.

Needle lace is a centuries old craft which has traditionally been passed from hand to hand. There are now few practitioners and even fewer resources for people to learn. 

In a community lacemaking project session, each person will make a small leaf-shaped sampler that covers all the basic needle lacing skills. Then the samplers will be collected and turned into one large-scale work to be exhibited at the Australian Design Centre in June 2024.

The classes are all free to participate, with an optional $5 donation to cover materials, venues and travel costs. 

The workshop lasts four hours. Come anytime and stay as long as you like. One leaf will most likely take 2-3 hours.
