Forthcoming Exhibitions at The Hollies

We are planning to re-open The Hollies under COVID-19 approved arrangements in May, but please check before visiting! Start and end dates of exhibitions and opening times remain subject to change.

20th Century Lace

19 May to 23 July 2021

The Hollies

Our 20th century lace collection spans work produced by professional lacemakers at the start of the era through to those who took up lace as a hobby as the century progressed. There were enormous changes in the way people were taught, the designs and patterns they were making, and a movement away from monochrome to colour.  

The Lace Guild actively collects examples of contemporary lace, through purchases and donations.

Welcome to the Collections

28 July to September 2021

The Hollies

Over the past year or so, our Museum collection has been enhanced through the generosity of its respective members, by items from both the Lace Society’s collection and the Guild of Needle Laces Archive. Therefore this display will appeal to both Bobbin and Needle lace enthusiasts.

Lockdown Lace

8 October 2021 to 21 January 2022

The Hollies

An opportunity to see some of the many projects undertaken by members to while away the hours during the enforced Covid 19 restrictions.
