Torchon Lacemaking: A step-by-step guide by Jan Tregidgo

Torchon lacemaking is a textile art steeped in tradition and the skills required are often perceived to be beyond the reach of ordinary mortals. In this practical book, Jan Tregidgo describes those skills through a step-by-step guide and makes them accessible to all. She explains traditional techniques through a series of specially designed samplers, which can be worked in order by the beginner or in any order they choose by the more experienced. Although colour is not traditional in bobbin lace, it has been used here to great effect so the path of each thread can be clearly followed through the sampler. The book covers essential equipment and materials, described in detail; traditional techniques are fully explained through a sequence of specially designed samplers; instructions for a super-beaded sampler; advice on adapting and designing your own patterns; guide to joining and mounting lace; helpful troubleshooting hints; and information on suppliers and museums with lace collections. This is an indispensable guide for all lacemakers, textile artists and designers, and is superbly illustrated with over 700 colour illustrations including step-by-step photographs and simple diagrams to ensure that each stage is understood.
