This event is now cancelled. The Old Heidelberg Court House is closed until after Easter. The Heidelberg Historical Society has taken this step to safeguard the health of all – visitors and volunteers – and to assist in containing infection.
Another lace-making demonstration is scheduled for Sunday 26 April, if the Society's museum has re-opened by then.
Here is the information about the event as previously originally planned:
The Banksia Lace Group demonstrates the traditional craft of bobbin lace-making, replicating the pattern used for the lace decorations made for Heidelberg's Busy Bee Signature Quilt in 1895-96.
The quilt is the centrepiece of an interpretive exhibition that was commended in the 2019 Victorian Community History Awards.
Visit the Heidelberg Historical Society's museum to see the original quilt on display, alongside the lace-making demonstration.
Admission charges apply:
Children under 16 (and members of Heidelberg Historical Society) free
The Heidelberg Historical Society expects all its volunteers and visitors to follow the latest government advice concerning COVID-19.
