Resources for Reticella

These are some resources for learning reticella/reticello.

BOOKS

Guida al ricamo reticello e merlatto venziano  "A great book with wonderfully clear photros of each stage of the work."

 

Giuliana Buonpadre: "Gli Andichi  Il Reticello" published in 2005. Jenny says:

Her books only seem to be available through her. Check out her web pages at

http://www.filofilo.it/eng/index.php   Go to the books tab, then right down the bottom she gives info on prices & how to obtain them.

 

Virginia Bonfiglioli Chiavegato:  Punto in Àere, Antico Merletto ad ago di Bologna.  Publ by  RE Enzo Editrice, 2003. pages: 120.  Language: Italian

Carmelina says: It's totally ilustrated, with patterns from beginners to experts. She gives indications about fix the lace to the fabric. The graphics are big with very clear instructions (if you speak italian, I've been translating them to spanish). The patterns have numeration for the execution. The graphics are done by Sergio Chiavegato and seem engineering work: perfect.  The photos are lovely with precious examples of reticello and punto in àere. I have no doubt that it's a very useful book.

 

Ricci, Elisa. Old Italian Lace, Vol. 1 part 5 has photos of some reticello samplers with a variety of motifs that could be copied.

Devon says: "look for Ostaus, Parasole and Vinciolo to find scanned copies of 19th century reprints of the original 17th and 16th century pattern books which feature reticello and punto in aria designs of unquestionable authenticity."

 

Laura Marzorati: Guida al ricamo Reticello e merletto veneziano, and Guida al ricamo Reticello Liberty

 

Paola Barbieri, Il Reticello interpretato da Paola Barbieri, published by the Associazione Il Punto Antico. You can purchase directly from the Edizioni Il Punto Antico website with PayPal or a credit card. You can request a French or English insert when you order.

There are step-by-step photos, good diagrams, works in progress, 11 different delicious projects, many filling stitches. (Review taken from Italian Needlework website by Jeanine in Canada.)

Margaret Stephens A GUIDE TO EMBROIDERED LACE.  

This  is a step by step beginners guide to a Reticella type lace  but worked within fabric after the cut out squares are stitched around.  Her photographs and diagrams of each step are very clear, and she takes  Small steps so the complete novice can understand what is what!   It progresses with clear instructions on how to cut away and make the grid, to step by step instructions on how to fill the grid with a variety of motifs.

 

There are 15 motifs shown, and corners and an edge,  and at the end of the book are some patterns for more complex designs. Her samples show multiple motifs arranged within the same piece to make a variety of patterns. Includes instructions for Left-handed workers too.

 

ONLINE SOURCES FOR PATTERNS:

http://www.cs.arizona.edu/patterns/weaving/books.html  Look for Dillmont, C.M. Ricci and Hardouin, which have some patterns for simple and complex geometric lace motifs.

Hardouin ALBUM DE DENTELLE DE VENISE.  Part 1 is geometric, part 2 curvilinear

Ricci, Cleofe Mingarelli DISEGNI DI TRAFORI

Novo, Giardineto. Punti Tagliati [Cutwork], Matthio Pagan, 1550 

Dillmont, Thérèse de. Needle-Made Laces; 1st Series, D.M.C, 1900. Part 1 is geometric laces.

(The Needlemade Laces of Reticella"  by  J. and K. Kliot is a reprint of the last item, part 1 of Dillmont's NEEDLE MADE LACES)

 

WEBSITES AND ONLINE TUTORIALS: 

http://pysankigirl.wixsite.com/graceslace ;     "Promoting the craft of historically designed needle lace."

Has 1 relatively simple design for practice near the end. http://wkneedle.bayrose.org/needlelace-reticella.html  This one has a different pattern, and is worked in the needle lace manner (fabric is only a temporary scaffold).

http://www.lastanzadeglihobby.it/retic_cuscino.htm  A photo of a sampler of fillings made into a pillow.  Enlargements show enough detail that they could be copied easily.

If you can't find a live teacher near you, do try some of the links above. There are very good materials online, and also good books.

Comment by Ann Meyer on March 23, 2020 at 6:48pm

 Is there anyone in Virginia who teaches reticella and other similar laces?  I am searching for in-person instruction, at least to get off to a really solid start.  I have several years of surface embroidery, but I find I am mostly drawn to reticello and ars punto and other similar historical needle laces.  Thank you for your replies.

Gosh that is just stunning! So much work!
Comment by Elizabeth Ligeti. on February 28, 2016 at 8:48pm

Wow!  Gosh! they had patience to work those great samplers, didn't they? - and to think that they did not have good spectacles like we do today, and they only had candle light at night...!!
