During this workshop, we'll take a closer look at this age-old technique. Along with experienced lacemakers, we'll learn step by step, on a cushion with bobbins and thread, how this is done.

We'll take our inspiration from old white lace pieces from the MoMu study collection, and make something cooler than cool ourselves. As colourful, as easy or as difficult as we like. Once you've mastered the technique, you won't know when to stop.

We'll end with a “Ready-Made” piece of work that we'll exhibit in MoMu's Studio!
