Bobbin Lace (1/3)
Today, I begin a short series with the art of "Bobbin Lace" as the leitmotif.
Comença aquí una breu sèrie amb l'art de fer "Punta de coixÍ" com a motiu.
Bobbin lace is worked with many threads, each wound onto a separate bobbin. The pattern (pricking) of pin-holes is marked on stiff card and is fastened to a firm pillow. The threads are fixed at the start of the pattern, although more can be added (or some removed) as the work progresses. All the stitches involve two pairs of bobbins, i.e. four threads. Once the stitches have been made they are held in position with pins pushed through the pin-holes in the pricking into the pillow. (info: The Lace Guild)
La punta de coixí és un art tèxtil que consisteix a elaborar unes filigranes fines a partir de l’ús d’un patró de cartolina, fil, boixets, agulles i un coixí.
El patró amb el dibuix a realitzar es subjecta al coixí i serveix de guia. S'hi claven les agulles que són les que aguanten els fils un cop es comença el teixit.
