Teacher Courses

The new teachers‘ course is starting

In September 2019 we are beginning a new three-year teacher training course in the Kantcentrum. 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.

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 for one day each week, on Tuesdays (there is a break for school holidays), 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.

The total package consists of 99 days teaching sessions, spread over three years, with a somewhat lighter timetable in the third year to enable you to work on the assignments and the thesis.

The programme for the first year 2019-2020 (35 weeks)

Torchon                                (20 half days)
Cluny                                     (4 half days)

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.
