The Lace Conservatory is a workshop for the production of needle lace and bobbin lace. New models are created every year. Different pieces are on sale at the Conservatoire: initials, handkerchiefs, place mats, bookmarks, jewelry, etc. (a certificate of authenticity can be issued).
The lacemakers can respond to specific orders; for example: wedding handkerchiefs with initials, gifts on the occasion of a birth, retirement, birthday, etc. The creation of a personalized model may require more or less time. Do not wait until the last moment.
The professional workshop is open to visitors, who can see the work in progress and ask questions to the lace makers.
The lace makers also highlight a lace heritage by exhibiting some old pieces in their workshop and by organizing exhibitions within the Conservatory.
Pay and display car parks available nearby.
The Conservatoire offers courses and courses in bobbin lace and needle lace for all levels from 12 years old.
Any internship or regular course implies an annual membership to the association of 20€.
