Centre d’Enseignement de la Dentelle Aux Fuseaux

Exhibition 2022: "The lace at the point of the needle" Opening of the exhibition: from 05/14/22 to 10/29/22 + virtual exhibition available at the beginning of May 2022


The earliest records of lace-making in Velay date from the 16th century. The art briefly declined in the 17th century, after the Toulouse Parliament prohibited it. The Jesuit Jean-François Régis helped to revive lace-making and today is the patron saint of lacemakers.
Over time, the Centre has acquired an international reputation. Its correspondence courses are followed all over the world, making it a reference in the field.
A themed exhibition is organised in the exhibition rooms each year.
In 2019 the exhibition is entitled: "Puy Lace - a Legend"
