Everyone who loves lace and is connected to it, both as an amateur or professionally, is working hard to preserve and professionally upgrade the tradition of lacemaking in Idrija. In this respect, the Idrija Lace School is the institution that most significantly contributes to the professional work in the field of lacemaking with its educational programmes . The programmes are intended for both school and adult students. Lacemakers can also gain knowledge at various professional workshops and through manuals published by the Idrija Lace School. The mission of preserving and presenting historical heritage, such as Idrija lace, is also the task of the Idrija Municipal Museum , which co-creates awareness of the importance of lacemaking in our area. Experience and knowledge are also transferred among adult lacemakers in the Idrija Lacemakers’ Association or its individual groups.
