Kantcentrum (Lace Centre)

Since last year, the Lace Centre has been housed in the renovated old lace school of the Sisters of the Immaculate Conception. The story of Bruges lace is told in the lace museum on the ground floor. Multimedia installations and testimonies from international lace experts help to explain the various different types of lace and their geographical origin, as well as focusing on the lace industry and lace education in Bruges. In an interactive way, using touch screens, the visitor is introduced to the complexities of ‘spellenwerk’: the making of lace with pins and bobbins. Demonstrations (2.00 p.m.-5.00 p.m.) and various courses are organized in the lace workshop on the first floor.
