»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.

We offer a guided tour of the exhibition to the visitors, lace-making demonstration,  invite visitors to try to make the lace themselves  and the possibility of purchasing a wide selection of quality handmade original Idrija lace, lacemaking materials, equipment and manuals.

Every year in June we prepare the exhibition anew. In the time of the Idrija Lace Festival (third weekend in June) 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.

You are invited to see the real lace masterpieces!
