Teacher Courses 2023-2024 -

The Lace Centre is working, full of enthusiasm, at the future.

From September 2022 our high standard teacher training will be divided into a basic training (2 years) and an expert training (2 years).

It is obvious that the modular system continues to exist.

Concerning the contents of our teachers’ course, nothing will change at all. The course offers a wealth of information, you learn to apply the traditional lace techniques into contemporary lace, both bobbin and needle lace. Creating lace yourself, developing creativity; for many, this is an exciting journey of exploration.

The lace history course, which explores the evolution of technique, style and fashion, helps to understand the importance of lace in society.

These innovations, which we are already gradually applying in the second and third year of the current teacher course, will be applied more in the classes of the following training. During the lessons, most of the time will be spent to theory. So, there will be more time for personal study at home and for creating own projects.

Each participant receives, for each specific course, a syllabus containing the structure of the course and examples of technical drawings. It remains essential that everyone is able to make technical drawings. If necessary, it can be learned during a two-day mini course which will be organized before the start of the teacher training.

The teachers will be available online to ask for additional explanations or to ask the necessary questions, but only about the given lessons.

Classes take place every two weeks, Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 1.30 p.m. to 4.30 p.m.

After the first two basic years, you receives a certificate. The lace teacher diploma is acquired only after completing the basic and expert training.
