Forthcoming Exhibitions at The Hollies

Lace From the Commonwealth

8 April to 6 August 2022

The Hollies

Knowledge of Lacemaking was taken to the countries of the British Empire during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Missionaries and other ex-patriots set up local industries selling their products locally, as well as sending their items for sale in the UK.

In honour of the Commonwealth Games we will be using lace from the Guild’s collection, including some of our superb Maltese, which originated from past and present member countries of the Commonwealth.

Also open on the first Saturdays of May, June, July and August.

Lace and Glass

12 August to 16 September 2022

To play our part in the Stourbridge Glass Bienniale Festival postponed from last year, we will once again be linking laces from our collection with items loaned from the Stourbridge Museum Glass Collection. 

Extended opening hours will be in place during the week of the Bienniale Festival.

Future Exhibitions
