Member of Bobbin Lace Club at the Edification Centre Pohronie (POS) Žiar nad Hronom.
“I learned bobbin lace making during my studies at university, around 1996-97. Like many other Slovakian lacers, I was perfecting the acquired skills on my own, with the book School of Bobbin Lace Making (Škola paličkovania), written by Víťazoslav Mišík. I have taken a break in lacemaking and learnt and perfected other textile techniques, especially patchwork.
I returned to bobbin lace only a couple of years ago, when I found some videos of Russian bobbin lace masters on the internet. These re-ignited my passion and launched my new creative phase. I began searching for people with similar passion for bobbin lace making and found them in the Bobbin Lace Club in my hometown Žiar nad Hronom, which I have been a member of since 2018. Even though it was Russian lace that inspired me, I still remain loyal to the traditional Slovakian lace. Its incredible variety offers wide opportunities to master the skills. I am trying to learn and develop as best as possible what our ancestors left us and make it attractive in a modern way.”
