Woman making bobbin lace, an astonishing experience

May 26, 2012

I made a movie of a woman making bobbin lace at the Kant Museum. She is amazing. The lacemaking demonstration took place in September 2008 in Bruges, Belgium at the lace museum, called the Kantmuseum. You will be as astonished as I was if you have never before seen bobbin lace being made by hand. The lacemaker uses a pattern which she keeps beside her and she glances at it from time to time without stopping her hand movements.

I will update the movie link soon.
