Beginners’ Course in Pag Lace

The inclusion of Pag lace on UNESCO’s list of world heritage speaks enough about its value and distinctiveness. Many lovers of handiworks are amazed by its beauty, and many are also impelled to try to create it themselves. Thanks to the nuns of the Benedictine monastery who were the first to teach lacemaking, the weaving of Pag lace has been an important source of income for many women in Pag through history. This special way of weaving lace with thread and needle has been transmitted from mother to daughter for centuries now. Learning the skill of weaving Pag lace is a lengthy process that is, in modern times, taught through the Lacemaking School. However, if you’re keen on handiworks, you can test your skills at a beginners’ course of weaving Pag lace under the guidance of experienced lacemakers from Pag.
