Make lace yourself digitally

Qualified teacher Make lace yourself digitally

Interactivity is an important feature of the lace museum.  In the second room the visitor has an interactive introduction to the techniques and aesthetics on the one hand and the lace industry in Bruges and its contemporary resonance on the other.  There are touch screens which inform the visitor about the differences between hand-made laces, both bobbin and needle lace, and machine lace.

The technique of bobbin lacemaking is based on the movements “cross” and “twist”, combined in the basic stitches: “whole stitch”, “half stitch” and “whole stitch with twist”.  These too can be experienced using a touch screen.  You can also leaf through a sample book.
