CRLG Special Events
Dr. Brenda Rewhorn discusses her educational journey at the University of Chester (United Kingdom) to obtain her Ph.D. in tatting. Usually small and portable, tatting is a craft practiced worldwide but rarely noticed. It is a valuable skill that has provided beauty, income, and decoration to many people. We will have the opportunity to take a fresh look at this unexplored and overlooked needlecraft as she also shares some of her research findings on the social history and technical development of tatting.
