I’ve been fortunate enough over the past few years to have had the opportunity to travel to Venice on 4 separate occasions. Last year, I made it a point (pun intended) to visit the lace making school and museum on the charming island of Burano.
Making lace by hand is an art that is in danger of dying out. These are two talented ladies who are trying to prevent that from happening. They were kind enough to allow me to watch as they created the tiny stitches. Pictured here are just a few of the hundreds of stunning patterns displayed in the Schuola Merletto.
