Lace Events

Edinburgh Lace Club

4th November 2016 to 27th January 2017

The latest in this series of annual displays showing the variety of beautiful and interesting work made by the members of local lace groups from around the UK. This long running club has been active North of the Border for many years now, but has never before displayed its members’ work at The Hollies. This exhibition can also be seen on Saturday 5th November.

The next display from 3rd February to mid-April 2017 will be of collars of all styles and ages from the museum collection — a complete cross section of different types of lace, some coarse others using unbelievably fine thread. This exhibition can be seen on Saturday 4th February
