Description

The former Templin State School schoolmaster's house is now home to a unique collection of textiles spanning more than a century of clothing. From footwear to hats, from the practical to the whimsical, items from the extensive collection are exhibited on a rotational basis.

The current exhibitions are Beautiful Babies, Bedazzled and Lace.

In Beautiful Babies, a variety of Christening robes are on display. Some of these date back to the early 1900s.

Bedazzled focusses on the use of beadwork on women's dresses in a time when austerity prevailed.

Lace showcases differring types of lace work and how lace was used to adorn more than just ladies undergarments.
