Denise Vickery - Bedfordshire Lace

Denise began making lace in 1981 and received a good grounding in English Laces from some excellent teachers.  She has been teaching for over 35 years and now specialises in Bedfordshire Lace. Her courses are designed for a range of students from those who have a good basic knowledge of Bedfordshire Lace, through to the more experienced who wish to advance their techniques into Thomas Lester laces.  Students may start new projects or complete ongoing work and will benefit from individual tuition, as well as from group discussions. Denise has a wide range of patterns that students can look through and make choices. She will also bring a variety of Antique Lace to display to the class.
