For the price of a cup of coffee per month, you will get a monthly subscription giving you access to all photo and text posts which we will update weekly with samplers, notes, technical illustrations, grounds, "behind the scenes" studio images and all kinds of related things that make bobbin lace such a mesmerizing craft.

If this is the only tier within your budget, you will still get all the information you need to start experimenting and designing.

If this tier is well beyond your budget, please email Pierre at pierre[dot]fouche[at]gmail[dot]com (copy this address by hand and change the punctuation) and we will send you a PDF with all the information and video links, absolutely free. We firmly believe that there should be no limitations on access to knowledge, so while the open-source generation and us wait for the world to catch on, we will gladly share what little we know to anyone who really cannot afford a subscription.

This implies that those who can afford a subscription will automatically donate a part to help bring our craft to underprivileged communities. If our scholarship lacemakers will allow it, We'll eventually (and discreetly) share their journeys with you too.

For the price of two coffees per month, you will get access to a monthly instructional video tutorial above the text and image lessons. The benefit of the supplementary video content is being able to see how to draft or make a pattern unit in sequence. 

Other kinds of videos that we're planning to publish are interviews and zoom lounge discussions about a variety of interesting lace topics.

We are not filmmakers, but we'll try our best to publish videos that are useful at the very least.

For the price of a drop-in yoga class at a nice studio, you can join our live monthly mentorship group session where you can share and get constructive feedback on your own creative bobbin lace designs, your creative & technical process, all in a supportive group context. You will also get early bird access & discounts for future online and in-person talks and workshops. The monthly mentorship sessions will occur on the second Saturday of every month in two or three time-zone groups depending on the group size and location.

(Please note that any available spaces are reserved for students from Asia, Australia & Europe, since the US time-zone group is at full capacity at the moment)

About The Adventurous Lacemakers

Hello World!

We are lace artists Jane Atkinson, Pierre Fouché, Dagmar Beckel-Machyckova & Denise Watts, and we noticed a gap in creative support for fellow adventurous lacemakers.

Our project aims to present you with a different view of using bobbin lace techniques; to allow individual interpretation of your own designs and control over what you wish to create. Our guidance and support are different from the majority of lace resources available because our goal is to teach you the very essence of bobbin lace instead of demonstrating how to apply a particular stitch to a specific pattern. Following that, our second goal is to show you the possible applications of the basic principles so that you can use bobbin lace as an artistic medium to express your truth.

Join the bobbin lace revolution! This platform and online community is perfect for you if you:

are just starting,
are curious about a specific technique,
want to push through a creative plateau in your lace, or
just want to hang out with like-minded lacemakers in a lace-police-free-zone...

This is the place where you’ll find inspiring:

text & image posts weekly.
monthly video tutorials,
masterclass sessions,
a vibrant online community through the members-only forum, and many
“behind the scenes”- posts about our professional art and lace careers,
(and exciting things yet to come):

We look forward to being a helping hand on your lacemaking adventure.


Your Friends in Lace

Jane, Pierre, Dagmar & Denise






Goals
117 of 200 patrons
We are halfway there! Once we've reached 200 lacemakers with "The Adventurous Lacemakers", we'd be able to focus more time on creating and hosting a new live class or "Zoom lounge". Please help us make this dream a reality, and invite your lacemaker friends to join.
