BOBBIN LACE CLASSES IN THE NORTH AREA
OF MADRID

Have you ever thought of learning bobbin lace? Against what you may have heard, it’s not difficult, it requires concentration and patience but with individualized classes or in small groups you will be able to learn spectacular techniques.

Whether you know nothing of the bobbin lace world or if you know torchon or any other simple technique and feel like making a great leap, now you can learn with classes in the North area of Madrid (San Sebastián de los Reyes, Alcobendas, Tres Cantos, Pedrezuela, El Molar, Guadalix…)

The classes will be held following a schedule, but the possibility of attending to other places to impart classes to already formed groups of students exists.

TÉCNICAS

El encaje de bolillos es un universo repleto de técnicas y estilos que van mucho más allá de lo que probablemente imagines. Las posibilidades, como las técnicas, son infinitas, pero de momento, en los cursos de Arzhela Bolillos podrás aprender en Madrid las siguientes técnicas de encaje de bolillos.

Torchón

Es la técnica básica que permite aprender las bases de cualquier encaje de bolillos posteriormente. Sabiendo solamente hacer torchón se pueden realizar muchos trabajos preciosos como esta cortina, pero se puede hacer bisutería, abanicos…..

Cluny

It’s a more open type of lace, with beautiful Tallies that stand out because they are surrounded by plaits that allow the leaves to take the main spot. Tallies can be included in Torchon lace or popular lace, but the technique of Cluny lace gives them an special and beautiful touch. It’s a lace of continuous threads that normally employs linen thread.

Cluny Polychrome

It’s a more open type of lace, with beautiful Tallies that stand out because they are surrounded by plaits that allow the leaves to take the main spot. Tallies can be included in Torchon lace or popular lace, but the technique of Cluny lace gives them an special and beautiful touch. It’s a lace of continuous threads that normally employs linen thread.

Austrian lace

It’s a ribbon type of lace, very simple: only 6 bobbins are employed and the result is a really useful kind of lace to be used in fashion and complements such as shoes, t-shirts…

Bruges Flowers

It’s a type of lace that uses discontinuous threads. Traditionally only white threads were employed, but the more modern addition of colors adds a new dimension. It is based around simple laces, but the most difficult part are the starts and the closings.

Tonder

Tonder is a type of Danish lace with continuous threads that traditionally has most of its fillings with knitting. Really thin threads are used to craft this kind of lace and is found a lot on the bonnets worn by women in black and white. Technically is a bit more complicated, although it is still fairly accesible and the results are spectacular.

Chantilly

Chantilly is a type of French lace born in the city of the same name, but really made known by the demand of rich women from that time. It uses continuous threads, which requires a great amount of bobbins and advanced dexterity. It uses really thin silk threads, traditionally black. The French technique has been improved afterwards by Ulrike Voelcker, who has given this type of lace another focus much more accesible and contemporary.

Polychrome Blonda

Blonda is a variation of Chantilly in which the fillings include a thread of lasa silk as a guide for the half stitch. It exists the Spanish Blonda, Caen Blonda (Normandie, France) traditionally white, and several Polychrome pieces were retrieved in Courseulles-sur-Mer, Normandie. This technique has been first developed by the lacers of the association Dentelles et Blondes de Caen, and afterwards, it has been used by more lacers like Mylène Salvador or Ulrike Voelcker.

Flanders

It’s a type of Belgian lace of continuous threads with twice the bobbins of the habitual techniques, due to the nature of its background. It’s a more dense kind of lace, traditionally white and using an 80 cotton thread.

Barjac

It’s a technique of unknown origin that had disappeared totally until it was recovered by Ulrike Voelcker in a book that compiles everything that’s necessary to craft Barjac lace. Is a kind of lace of high difficulty, with continuous threads of really thin silk and a lot of bobbins.

Duchess Withof

It’s a technique of discontinuous threads born in Sluis, The Netherlands at the beginning of the 20th century thanks to a nun called sister Judith. It’s an evolution of the Duchess lace which is worked with very thin threads and a really high level of exigence but with spectacular results.
