Beginning Tatting

Series taught by Anne Danko

April 25, May 2 and May 9, 2018 / 4 pm - 6 pm

Tatting is an art that dates back to the 17th century. It is the task of handcrafting a particularly durable lace from a series of knots and loops. Today, some people are familiar with the art or simply remember their grandmother doing it as they were children. Join Anne Danko in this 3 week series in the basics of tatting. Participants can range in skill from little knowledge to just needing a refresher.
Artist Bio: Having learned to Tat in 1993 while working my first season at Old World Wisconsin, I have become both well-versed in the technique and in the history of the craft. I have taught tatting workshops since 2001 to all skill levels and have a degree in History from the UW-Stevens Point. My desire to learn started with a curiosity about the craft, and the rest - shall we say - is history. My interests include the study of 19th C. Material Culture, Wisconsin History, crocheting, knitting, sewing and spending time in Northern Wisconsin. I spent 24 years as a Historic Interpreter (Tour Guide) at Old World Wisconsin, located in Eagle.
