Walk through the exhibition ‘The Hidden Side of Lace’ and enjoy the wonderful lace and textile works that have been made by Belgian students in art academies. Lieve will explain how these pieces of art came into being and what was the focus. The students are part of art schools, so they combine different techniques and art forms. The historical section of the exhibition highlights the importance of professional knowledge.
