The Turnhout lace style is beautifully illustrated in “Van speldengrond tot Turnhoutse Kant”, by Nora Andries, Harry de Kok, Luc Huygens, Guido Landuyt, Frieda Sorber, and Lieve Vroom. Sometimes called “Point de Paris” (although not by the Turnhout lacemakers), this exhibition will show the best of such work, and also offer demonstrations. This group works with old patterns, and with ones they design themselves.
