Australian Lace Guild

  • Region : Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania, Australian Capital Territory

The Australian Lace Guild was formed in 1979 in NSW to bring the lacemakers of Australia together. The National Administrive Committee is currently in Tasmania

Members make lace for their own enjoyment and for their own use.  Lace makers find their craft deeply satisfying, sometimes challenging, and very rewarding.  Lace making can be very time consuming and on the whole has not been made on a commercial basis in Australia for many years. The amount of time involved in making lace would render it unaffordable.  For example, it can take more than one hour to make a one centimetre square of lace.
