Exhibition in Krapivna: White Lace (Winter Dreams)

_jpgDecember 27, 2016 - February 7, 2017
Krapivna Local History Museum

What do we usually asociate with white lace? For some people, it is items made by craftswomen, various collars and doilies, and the sound of lace bobbins. For others, it’s trees in hoarfrost, ice patterns on the window panes, and snowflakes. These both components will be present at the exhibition White Lace (Winter Dreams): the lace not made by human hands, but created by winter nature and captured by photographers; and the lace skillfully made by the hands of Tula craftswomen.
