Celebrating the art of handmade lace in all its forms. The Lace Guild is a membership organisation for anyone interested in lacemaking.

The Guild's headquarters is based at The Hollies in Stourbridge. The Hollies contain a well-appointed library, probably the most comprehensive lace library in the world and a collection of lace and lace-related items which has been recognised through the designation of The Hollies as an accredited museum.

Both members and non-members are welcome to visit The Hollies.  Entrance is free but donations are welcome.

The Hollies host a series of exhibitions throughout the year. You can view latest exhibitions on the Lace Guild website. 

Car Parking

There is a small car park at The Hollies, in addition to parking on Junction Road. There is also a car park at the Red House Glass Cone, which is a short distance along the A491, which visitors to The Hollies are welcome to use. It is also where the Lace Guild also has a small exhibition case that is also themed and changed regularly.  

Why not combine a visit to the Red House Glass Cone (admission free), where there is a lovely coffee house. Or explore the Stourbridge Glass Museum directly opposite (charges apply).
