Hairpin Lace Bracelet

Hairpin lace is s0-called because lace-makers in the Victorian era used the U-shaped hairpins in their hair to make extremely fine lace. This technique creates delicate and beautiful lace that looks difficult to achieve at first glance, but is really quite learnable. I’m really pleased to revive interest in this age-old art with a modern twist – creating a contemporary bracelet with a traditional technique!

This workshop will provide one of the best looms I’ve found – 12 inches (30 cm) long so you can make a long strip at a go instead of having to stop and start intermittently on smaller looms which can only work short strips; and it is highly flexible, allowing you to adjust your lace width from 1 cm, 2 cm, 3 cm… up to 10 cm (exception of 9 cm), so you can work with lace-weight up to heavier yarn weight categories without being limited by a small/restricted width loom. Special import by Sewinlove!
