Forthcoming Exhibitions at The Hollies
25 November 2023 - 9 March 2024 "Machine Laces"
As the mechanical capabilities of lace making machines developed during the 19th century, so did the quality and virtuosity of the lace designs. From just copying the handmade lace designs in the first half of the 19th century to the creation of ‘all over lace fabrics’ which enabled lace dresses and blouses to be an affordable option. Including the fashions for Art Nouveau and Art Deco lace designs, as the 20th century progressed.
