Short Course: The Story of Lace

About

The story of lace is a fascinating journey starting in the mid-sixteenth century and travelling through the ages. It examines the rapid development of lace as an openwork fabric, created with a needle and single thread (needle lace) or with multiple threads (bobbin lace).

This workshop is in connection with ‘By Royal Appointment’ an exhibition that will focus on the people who made lace from the 18th to 20th centuries. Many of these lace-makers and manufacturers contributed to the Royal wardrobe, in particular wedding lace. The exhibition will showcase RAMM’s own lace collection by well-known East Devon manufacturers including Exeter-based Charlotte Treadwin, Esther Clarke and the Wards of Honiton and John Tucker of Branscombe, all of whom were commissioned by the Royal Family.
