This is the 44th annual Lace Week in Rauma, Finland. Most of the events will be held in Finnish, although some are in English and French. There will be extensive events many unrelated to lace. There is a lace workshop for young children, and an international crafts market. There will be an exhibition of modern Czech lace at the Rauma museum, along with a fashion show.
As in the past, there will be a number of performances by various bands, especially on Friday, the traditional “Night of Black Lace”.
This year’s poster includes a copper wire bobbinlace piece by artist Hellevi Wikgren.
