Textile restorer specialising in research, conservation and restoration of bobbin laces, lecturer.
“I have been actively involved in bobbin lace making for more than eight years. I acquired the basics of this textile art during my studies at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava (VŠVÚ), Department of Restoration, where I chose historical textile arts as a supplementary subject. After graduation from the Academy, I attended a three-year course of bobbin lace making at the Centre for Folk Art Production (ÚĽUV). This textile art enchanted me so much that it determined my professional specialisation. I am currently working as a textile restorer specialising in research, conservation and restoration of bobbin laces. I am interested in history, which provides information and inspiration for my artwork. I lead courses, design my own patterns and encourage others to practice bobbin lace making and to design their own patterns. I have given lectures about bobbin lace making at academic conferences in Slovakia and abroad, and published several academic papers.”
