Learning to make lace online
LACE WEB is a unique training institution on a private level.
Beginners and advanced learners are given the opportunity to get to know the variety of lace-making techniques and characteristics in numerous courses.
The courses are led by Martina Wolter-Kampmann who is a studied textile designer and teacher as well as a trained bobbin lace maker (Link zu “Biography” einfügen!).

The German version of Lace Web, "das Klöppelnetz", is also recognized by the Dortmund Chamber of Crafts as a training company and has been training textile designers in the craft – specialist area of lace-making – since 2014. This training is offered as in-company training but also in combination with distance learning on a part-time basis: apprenticeship.
The technical courses focus on learning the technique according to designs by Mrs. Wolter-Kampmann. You will learn step by step following precise instructions.
You will modularly learn about the technique based on templates by the author first, and then gradually apply the technique to your own designs. The A-Z courses are recommended for teachers and designers.
This is an advanced training course. The prerequisite is that you have already mastered the technique. Your knowledge will be expanded so you can learn to design yourself using this technique. You will work according to your own designs from the very beginning and in doing so you will get to know design criteria that are essential for future projects.
The principle of the
The teaching material is prepared in such a way that you can be instructed and supervised step by step in the respective techniques. The lessons are conducted out as a distance learning course / correspondence course.

You receive clear information and tasks and I review your elaborations.

Distance learning courses
the 3 categories
Before the start of the course, information and a list of materials will be sent for each course.
All courses are segmented into individual lessons. The exact number of lessons can be found in the individual offers.
These lessons are printed documents. They are systematically structured according to the principle "from easy to difficult". New patterns and techniques are learned and the contents are repeated in such a way that you can master and apply all the contents at the end of the course. Included in all distance learning courses is one questionnaire per lesson, which you should fill out and send me back in your own interest. The questionnaire will give me feedback on whether you have understood the facts or whether there is still a need for clarification. If you have understood everything, you may begin with the practical work.
What happens in case of illness or other adverse circumstances during a course participation?
If you are unable to continue with the course for health or other reasons, the duration of the course will be extended. In this case, (Komma) personal arrangements must be made with the course management. In case you decide to cancel the course, (Komma) a 4-week period of notice applies. See GTC (nicht FAQ!).
For this teaching model, of course, good cooperation between participants (m/f/d) and teacher_ (Singular) is essential of course.
