Intro to Tatting

Thursday, November 10th / 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM

Contact: Betty Havrylik (401) 333-2552, x 2

Tatting is an old lace-making technique that any one with nimble fingers and a bit of patience can master. Its origins are lost to antiquity and clouded in mystery. It is traditionally done with a small shuttle that holds the thread.

This class will teach the basics of shuttle tatting: rings, chains, picots and joins. The final product will be a small wreath that one can use as an ornament or a pin.

Cumberland resident Esther Paris will teach the class. She has been shuttle tatting for 16 years. She recently won a blue ribbon and a People’s Choice award for her original silk necklace design at The Big E (Eastern States Exposition). She is a member of the New England Lace Guild.

Shuttles and thread will be supplied at class time. Pre-registration and payment is required. Class size is limited.

Fee: $10, payable upon pre-registration by November 9th at the Reference Desk. Questions? Call (401) 333-2552, x 2.
