Alžbeta Mrázová avails of a wide scale of patterns. She creates covers of all shapes and sizes, jewels and decorations and, at the same time, passes all her knowledge on. In 2014 she was awarded the title Master of Folk Art Production by ÚĽUV for the preservation and development of bobbin lace.
She is very creative in her work, enjoying it thoroughly and trying to captivate the public with new ideas at various events.
