For the past 2 years I've written a tatting blog online, Threads of a Tatting Goddess at http://threadsofatattinggoddess.blogspot.com/ and I host a yahoo group with the same name. Last year I attended Palmettos Tat Day, a workshop in Montana, and the Greenfield, Indiana guild's Tat Day. I'm also active with my local group, Lafayette Lacer's, and we are hosting a Lace Day in May, 2005. I recently completed the Apprentice phase of Tatters Across Time and just filled out my application for the second phase.
I love meeting other tatters!
"Decorative Cords, the Split Ring Way"
Time: Saturday, 9 to 11
and Split Rings and Color Play
Beginner to Intermediate Level: Never tatted-true beginner up to a knowledge of how to tat a ring and/or a split ring or just a desire to tat this project.
The scissors fob may be completed in class but the eyeglass holder will take longer. Same technique.
"All Roads Lead to Home, Four Ways to Make a Decorative Cord"
Time: Friday, 3:30 to 5:30
Techniques: Rings, Chains, Split Rings,
Intermediate to Advanced Level: Knowledge of rings, chains and split rings. Knowledge of pearl tatting is a plus but can be learned during class time. Or just a desire to tat this project.
The bulk of the lesson is how to make the cord, the variations that result with color changes, adding beads and decorative picots. The completed cord is then inserted through the wings of a butterfly motif. The butterfly pattern is from an old Needlecraft magazine (before copyright laws were enacted). The cord in that pattern is different from what I’m teaching.
Additionally, I will have other motifs to demonstrate that you can use any motif big enough to replace the butterfly to make a necklace by this method. Will also discuss other possible uses for decorative cord. There will not be enough time to complete the project, but students should be able to master all of the techniques.
Class 3 Team Teaching with Georgia Seitz
"Time to tat, chat, teach and learn while finishing up the workshop projects"
Time: Saturday, 3 to 5
Technique: Any needed
review may be requested on the spot
Study Hall: This session provides additional instruction for the student who wants more direction and time to complete a project begun in an earlier class. Also, feel free to join this class if you’ve been working at home on a pattern by this designer and would like some guidance in its completion.
