  • The lace school started operating in Idrija in 1876. The place of the first teacher was played by Ivana Ferjančič (1850-1879). Today, about 400 schoolgirls attend the lace school as an interesting activity. The school also offers a variety of adult education. Its greatest merit lies in the successful retention of sophisticated techniques. Today you can see the various lace exhibited at the school of lace-making. The exhibition is suitable for children as adults.
