Lace exhibition

 »See what I can do!« is the title of the annual exhibition of Idrija Lace made by children and youngsters from Idrija Lace School. These children and youngsters are the bearers of the intangible heritage of making bobbin lace in Slovenia, which is subscribed to the UNESCO Representative List of Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

Every year in June we prepare the exhibition anew. In the time of the Idrija Lace Festival the visitors have the opportunity to vote for the most beautiful lace by their selection. At a public event we declare and award the maker of the most beautiful lace by votes of the visitors, a symbolic prize is also awarded to one of the voters.

We offer a guided tour of the exhibition to the visitors, lace-making demonstration and the possibility of purchasing lace-making literature and a wide selection of quality handmade lace.

The opening hours of the exhibition in the summer, from the third weekend in June to 31. August, are: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9.00  to 15.00; Wednesday from 9.00 to 19.00. Closed on Sundays.
