Craft Mentors and Teachers

Find a Mentor or Teacher Near You

Mentoring a tatting studentThose of us at the Tatting Corner are passionate about passing along the tradition of Tatting, an ancient lace making form that dates back to biblical times. This beautiful and lacey lace is a durable piece of history that can be passed down from generation to generation. I originally learned from my grandmother and now my daughter is learning the craft at the age of 8.

For those who have always wanted to learn but don't have the family or connections, we want to be your tatting family and help you with the resources you need to learn. Many folks can and have taught themselves to tat. However learning the transfer sometimes is just so much easier with a teacher or a guiding hand.

As part of our mission to help continue the rebirth of Tatting we are offering this page, a Teachers Page if you will. Our hope is that no matter where you live, you can find a tatting teacher, a mentor or a tatting guild nearby that can help.

If you are an experienced tatter, lacemaker or crocheter who would love to mentor someone, or you are teacher for hire and would like to be listed on this page, please click the button above to submit your information.

This listing is absolutely free. We hope someday to have representation from as many states and countries as possible.

Munising, Michigan USA
Name:
GlynneEllen
Email:
Description:
I learned to tat from my father who was a mechanic. He could make the most beautiful and delicate lace with his fingers. I wanted to do just like he did. He learned from his mother when he was confined to bed with the measles for quite a long time and was bored. He made lace for my hats and collars when I was little and tatted several headpieces for bridal veils, including one for a lady in Japan. My father tatted the wings for an angel that I knitted the body and dress for and my daughter and granddaughter knitted the arms and legs. The angel was sent to Washington D.C. to be on the Christmas tree there and then auctioned. It turned out just beautifully. I owned a small craft supply shop in my town of Munising, Michigan and I was able to pass along my love of tatting to some of the ladies of the town. I am available to teach anyone who would like to learn if they can come to my house in Shingleton. I would hate to see the beauty of tatting die out when there are still people who know how to do it.

Parma, Ohio - I learned shuttle tatting from my mother starting at about age 8. She had learned from my dad's mom who wanted to make sure the art didn't die out.

Over the next 45 years, I taught myself double shuttle & ball & shuttle. I have no daughters to pass this on to. And while my sons picked up crochet & sewing, neither of them wants to tat.

Name:
Cyndi Foore
Email:
Description:
I live in NE Ohio(Warren, Trumbull County)and have been teaching tatting and needlework for a number of years. I learned needlework at a young age and my first teaching experience was at 13. I have expanded my needlework experience over the span of 40+ years, first crochet, then embroidery, crewel, cross stitch, samplers, needle lace, spinning, knitting, and hand quilting.

I have also lectured on a variety of needlework themes ie: samplers and their history, antique sewing tools, lace and it's history, Victorian needlework etc. I will travel to groups to teach tatting, needlework and/or lecture. This does depend on the distance, number of students travel costs and the weather. I try to stay local from November through March.

My max for a tatting group is 7, my min is 3. For samplers my max is 16 my min is 8 and is negotiable for needlework, but not tatting.

I will do follow up classes as needed, again with the above parameters.

My goal is to have fun while teaching/learning a new skill. That is the reason we create with our hands. I also believe the best teachers are constant students themselves, striving to learn more and achieve the highest standards.

You can contact me though email or Facebook at Cyndi Foore. I look forward to hearing from you.

As a child, every sunday afternoon was spent learning from my grandmother everything a young lady should know. I have a life long passion of playing with string in all forms, knitting, crocheting & various forms of lace making.

Three years ago I started a group called "Tuesday Tatters". We gather every Tuesday from 3:30 until 8 pm. We meet at the senior center in Richardson, Texas (a suburb of Dallas). Our group's website is http://tuesdaytatters.blogspot.com.

Originally I thought there would just be a few of us but our group has grown beyond my wildest dreams! On any Tuesday there will be up to 20 people. We offer free instruction. You don't need anything except the desire to learn. We have shuttles and string! Many of us have won ribbons at the state fair and have even been asked to demonstrate Tatting there. We have both shuttle and needle tatters in our group and would love to welcome you!

About 3 years ago I was given my first shuttle by a woman who was tatting at a craft show. Her goal was to introduce the craft to more people so we would not lose the art. It took me several months to learn the basics, and though I would not say I'm an expert by any stretch of the word; I am a competent shuttle tatted who would be happy to share knowledge with others learning to tat.

Forty years ago, my amazing grandmother taught me tatting basics, providing me with tools, beautiful assortments of thread, her love of tatting,crochet, and knitting and, perhaps most importantly, the need to have my hands constantly busy creating some sort of needle art or craft. I teach all sorts of courses at JoAnn's in Woodbridge, VA (needle arts, beading, sewing, quilting, painting, et. al) and I also am the Director, Springfield Teaching And Resource Services (S.T.A.R.S.)where classes are scheduled for home school families and friends in many disciplines including needle arts. I am always eager to help others find their creativity by teaching important skills necessary to complete beautiful, useful needle art.
