The Lace Guild

Celebrating the art of handmade lace in all its forms. The Lace Guild is a membership organisation for anyone interested in lacemaking.  

On Saturday 3 June there will be an additional open day at The Lace Guild.  This will be your last opportunity to see our ‘Recent Acquisitions’ exhibition before we close for redecoration, reopening on Friday 23 June.  Opening hours are 10am to 3pm.

The guild's headquarters is based at The Hollies in Stourbridge. The Hollies contains a well appointed library, probably the most comprehensive lace library in the world, and a collection of lace and lace-related items which has been recognised through the designation of The Hollies as an accredited museum.


The Hollies hosts a series of exhibitions throughout the year. Visit their website for details of their latest exhibition. 


Members resident within the UK can borrow items from the guild library either by personal visit to The Hollies or by post. The librarian is in the office on Thursdays 12.30 to 4pm and Fridays 8.30am to 4pm.

Both members and non-members are welcome to visit The Hollies. Entrance is free to members. A small donation from non-members would be appreciated. 

Car parking

There is a small car park at The Hollies, in addition to parking on Junction Road. There is also a car park at the Red House Glass Cone, which is a short distance along the A491, which visitors to The Hollies are welcome to use.  Why not combine a visit to the Red House Glass Cone, where the Lace Guild also has a small exhibition case.
