The 2016 Edinburgh Lace Course ran from Monday 25th-Friday 29th July at Heriot-Watt University. Sixty two ladies attended the Course and worked on a variety of Bobbin Laces including Torchon, Bucks Point and Bedfordshire from Britain; Brugge, Flanders, Binche, Paris Ground and Mechlin from the Continent. One of the four tutors, Claire Allen, was new to the Edinburgh Course and inspired students with her love of modern Milanese and Idrija Lace; some of the ladies worked on designing contemporary modern laces.
