This type of lace is also known as Turkish lace among the lace makers but in this case it is made by knotting with small needles. Natural silk or cotton threads are usually used in needle works. Participants in the class will learn how needle works can be made either as a single wrap or a double wrap and how compositions of motifs can be created depending upon the intended use of the lace, such as joints, scarf lace, headdress lace, crown lace, purse lace, and others. For the motifs to stand straight, the lace maker can also use horse hair, aerial wire and more recently fish wire. When it is ready, the lace can also be starched with egg white sugar or gelatin.
