Retrospective exhibition of fifteen years of cooperation between the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering and the Association of Idrija Lace lace-makers

Gallery above the Town Library Idrija, St. Barbara street 4–5

Fifteen years ago, the Municipality of Idrija and the Association of Idrija Lace Lace-Makers concluded an agreement with the Department of Textile, Graphics and Design of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering of the University of Ljubljana on long-term cooperation in the field of educational, research and development program "NIMIS" for Idrija lace. Since 2014, the Idrija Heritage Centre has been involved as a coordinator of the activities. They have been focused on the developing of transformation of Idrija lace into a contemporary artistic expression based on the visual art analysis and search for new design possibilities in Idrija lace techniques, in the process from drawing to lace-making and presentation methods.


Under the mentorship of professors Vera Sešlar Založnik, Marjeta Godler, Marija Jenko, Almira Sadar and Elena Fajt, the collaboration of students and Idrija lace-makers has developed into an exceptional, picturesque and highly creative opus of unique lace, demanding and original both in terms of visual content and performance.
