    Practical information

Visit with guide

If desired, a Bruges certified guide can take you round the museum.  The visit lasts 1-2 hours, price €75.00.

Payment is made to the guide on the spot.  Maximum group size 20 people per guide


Youth workshop (9 years upwards)

Would you like a taster workshop with your class?  You will very quickly learn the basis of bobbin lace making: crossing and twisting, putting up pins and…… a beautiful bookmark is the result!   Qualified teachers are always ready to teach you the art of bobbin lace making.  Individually or as a group.  For this contact the Kantcentrum:  info@kantcentrum.eu

School visits

Free entry for Bruges schools (<18 years).

Behaviour on a class trip is sometimes more exuberant than in school, which is why we ask teaching staff to

  • Split the class into small groups of 10 pupils
  • Provide one teacher to accompany each group of 10 pupils
  • Keep each group under control
  • Prevent shouting, running and fighting
  • Bring in no food and drink (or chewing gum)

Tailor-made workshop

Would you and your group, small society, bobbin lace club or other organisation like to explore your choice of lace or perhaps study a certain lace in more detail?  No problem.  The Kantcentrum offers a tailor-made workshop, tutored by a specialist in the chosen lace.  Tell us what you want to achieve and, above all, describe your group’s level in the lace.  With this information we will ensure an exciting initiation or more advanced session in the chosen lace type.

For this, contact the Kantcentrum: info@kantcentrum.eu
