I love a good challenge. If, I was a student at the workshop, I would love to learn something new and challenging.
This technique class is the one. The students are given a box with three prepared embellishments. One in silver, one in gold, and one in bronze. We will go over how it was prepared for tatting and work through, how to design this. They are the designer.
I had done something similar to this last time, but gave them my design right after they designed theirs. They had the choice of tatting mine or tatting their own. I was so excited when a couple of ladies tatted their own design....Don't worry, I won't leave them hanging. At the end of class, I will give them my design.
