Make, learn and talk about needle lace.
Here is the information about the OIDFA class for paska cipka:
PAG NEEDLE LACE
Tutor: Nedjeljka Uros, President of Society of Pag lace makers
The needle lace from island Pag in Croatia can find its origin among the accomplishment of the textile handicraft of the eastern Mediterranean area. One of the basic decorative forms of the original Pag lace is reticella. The women from Pag call works in original reticella “paški teg” – “teg” meaning work, i.e. woman’s handicraft. We can find it on the chest of the shirt and narrower sides of “pokrivaca” – head-kerchief, the ancient type of female headdress that was worn as early as the 15th century. Paški teg was done with no drawn sketches.
The same way of work and ornament were followed at the beginning of the 20th century when, under the influence of the School of Lace-making in Pag, lace become an independent piece of art, it is no longer tied to the linen base. As a difference from paški teg, this is the only work that women from Pag call “lace”.
All materials and equipment for course will be provided.
I am very interested in hearing from anyone that was able to take this class.
