The establishment and development of the Lace School Idrija is largely credited to Ivanka Ferjančič, the first teacher of lace making at the school.

Her work and ideas have marked the school that has very much influenced Idrija and its surroundings throughout the history. Ivanka was first taught at a public school in Idrija but her big love was lace. Because she was so talented in this handicraft, she was sent by the authorities to South Tyrol, to a private lace making school. After she returned home, she began creating new patterns with her sister Antonija and brother Jožef, which paved the new way of the Idrija lace into the world. Idrija became well known internationally and imminent development followed soon. 

The authorities also realized Ivanka Ferjančič's talent and invited her to Vienna. After consulting with her, in October 1876 the first lace making school in Idrija was established and it has been active ever since. Ivanka was the first teacher of lace making at the school and a member of the administration board that managed the school. Unfortunately she died of illness only three years later, at the tender age of 29. After her death the school developed further under the management of teachers she trained herself and later many new came in.
