The teacher training consists of a three-year cycle.
In September 2019 started the first year of the current teacher training course in the Bruges' Lace Centre.
We are keeping the modular system so that you can enrol on one or several modules instead of having to follow the whole cycle, as you know.
This training course not only covers study and transfer of techniques using the method developed by the former Lace Normal School in Bruges, but also personal development based on these techniques and an understanding of the past in order to apply the knowledge in the here and now. Thus, even at the beginning of the 2nd or 3rd year, one can enroll separately for the modules of that 2nd or 3rd year without having followed the 1st year.
History of lace is an essential tool for learning to understand and place the significance of lace in our society.
Developing your own projects using ancient techniques and ideas with contemporary resonance are covered extensively, both in bobbin and needle lace.
Three years of study Tuesdays , guarantee you a wealth of information, development and your own designs in a group of kindred spirits and with the support of all the teaching staff. Teaching hours: from 10 am until until 1 pm and from 1.30 pm until 4.30 pm.
Price for a full year: 600 €.
Price per module: See website
If you take several modules over the year and the sum of their prices would be more than the total for the course, no more than this maximum amount is payable
Enrolment must be no later than 3 weeks before the first session of the course. A minimum participants is required for the course to run. The number of participants for each course is limited. The decision on whether the course will run is taken 3 weeks before the start at the latest.
You are not definitely registered until payment of the deposit is received which also implies that you agree to the conditions. In case of cancellation less than three weeks before the start of the course, the deposit will not be refunded
