Tatting Class with Kelli Slack


For those looking to move forward with their tatting skills, there is still room in Kelli Slack's class.   2022 IOLI Convention 

A525 Tatting From Thread to Wire and Picots to Chains—For those at Level 2 and above (Kelli Slack)

 In this tatting class, we will focus on the basics of tatting. There are many ways to form picots, to make joins, and to use rings. We will play with as many techniques as we can fit into class, including using wire for tatting. Each day will focus on a different aspect of tatting. There will be projects available, but during class we will focus more on technique than a project.

Prerequisites: Students must understand basic tatting terminology and be able to make rings, chains, joins, picots, split rings, mock rings, self-closing mock rings and how to use beads, hide ends, etc.

Kelli Slack is a lace lover who teaches both knitting and tatting. A multiple knitting and lace award winner, designer, and author, she also holds a Masters degree in both Education and Learning Design from Purdue University and loves to use her knowledge of teaching to create crafting classes.
