27th October - 17th November 2021 Learn Bucks Point course online The Lace Museum (online) Sunnyvale, California

Course Description: The class is aimed at newcomers to Bucks Point, and uses the staged learning from Bucks Point Lace Workbook. For anyone who has not tried a point ground lace before, it will start at the very beginning, but with the opportunity to move on a little further if some of the basics have already been learnt previously. The class is suitable for anyone in the early stages of learning Bucks Point, including the early stages of floral Bucks as featured in the later lessons in the book. Complete beginners will start at the beginning of the book, whilst intermediate will have a choice in consultation with Louise before the course. Students will work at their own pace but have the opportunity to move on to the next pattern when they are ready.

The class is held via zoom and requires 2 devices to take part. It will run on 4 consecutive Wednesdays from 5pm-7.30pm (GMT)
