Lacemakers Gathering


Lacemakers Gathering

During St. Roc’s Festival, a lacemakers gathering is organised. There you will be able to see bobbin lace works and lacemakers working. When bobbin lace arrived in Malgrat women were paid for this craft job done at home or on the street. By then lace was integrated as a valuable element on household linen and bed linen, on handkerchiefs and some clothing. Later, industrial lace arrived. Nevertheless, today new bobbin lace makers don’t work out of necessity but for pleasure, as a hobby, and they invent new styles and experiment with new materials, which result in original pieces that you will have the chance to see in the gathering.
