Lace by Music - 24 June 2020
Maximum: 8 places
The lace by music is a type of lace knitting. Borders or edgings that were made by women in the most remote villages of Portugal. I am developing a researchand a collection of samples across the country on the subject. These lace have the particularity of being all made mostly in purl stitches and for that purpose a special "code" as been created to pass along those patterns from generation to generation. This “code” is the so-called "music" of the lace and is composed of a series of symbols created by people who at that time didn’t know how to read or write.
- Historical approach to Lace by music;
- Explanation of symbols and how to interpret them;
- Workinglace by musicsamples.
