I have been offering online courses with meetings and videos since 2021. This has proven to be extremely fruitful. I offer my virtual courses in German and English. Learning in a meeting is somewhat different from learning in the usual classroom atmosphere.
- We meet in a virtual meeting room
- The theme is presented with pictures and videos
- Explanations and help are given via Whatsapp, emails and mobile phone
- Debriefing and exchange of experience, suggestions, explanations and tips take place in the joint meeting
- By enlarging the pictures, unexpected details can now be recognised and discussed.
- You will receive a supply-list
- If more than 6 participants are interested, the course can be held and everyone will receive a payment form and a participation link.
- The documents are sent in advance as a PDF file, which also contains the bobbin lace patterns.
- We will use Zoom-us as our meeting platform. To take part, download the Zoom app for free. Zoom-App herunter.
- The number of participants is limited to 10.

Due to my training at the lace school in Bruges and my thirty years of experience as a lace teacher, my range of different topics is quite rich. I show with pleasure to beginners the first handles and lead advanced up to individual designs suitable for the technique.

Frequently asked questions
You should know the basic stitches of lace making. For this I can recommend the introductory DVD from the bobbin lace net available in the shop for 19.95 euros (only in German) and the follow-up DVD for either the roll or the flat cushion. In it there are also basics in a booklet and you learn what is important. Or you can show me some of your already completed work and I will then decide whether you have all the necessary requirements.

If you are unable to attend the course for health or other reasons, your course duration will only be extended. Personal arrangements with the course director are necessary in this case. See:General Terms and Conditions (GTC) General terms and conditions
For this trining a good cooperation of teacher and student is important.
In general in each time but in prior consultation with the course leader, because of a limited number of students.
I recommend the Torchon technique-course for coming in. You learn a lot of different patterns and basics for straits and finishes.
All courses contain individual lessons that explain the technique step by step and exercises let you gradually build up understanding of the techniques. These lessons are sent in sequence by email or by post if requested.
First, you have to read the entire content of a lesson. Before making lace, the questionnaire in the documents should be filled out. I can see from the answers where there may be a need for explanation and then talk this through with you. If you are sure enough about what to do, then you may start.
I offer you support. Either via WhatsApp or e-mail. You send me pictures of the situation on your pillow if you have any questions and I will give you feedback if it is correct or where there are errors and how to fix them. You will feel like sitting next to you.
