Experienced teacher in embroidery and stumpwork. Took over Ruskin Lace from the late Elizabeth Prickett, considered the leading exponent of the craft

Horray! Karen will be more available soon so more classes are on their way!

Ruskin Lace was developed from an idea brought to the Lake District by John Ruskin (whose home was Brantwood on Lake Coniston) in 1883-4 after visits to Italy.
