VERY REMARKABLE AND ORIGINAL LACE BOOK
The idea for the "Domino" project was to present old lace techniques in a new playful manner. The concept discussed and agreed by the members of the Masterclass was to design a number of domino blocks, with different grounds on each. A total of 28 double dominoes have been worked out in a combination of the 7 different patterns.

In 1983, under the impulse of Anne-Marie Verbeke-Billiet, together with 7 ladies, a 'Masterclass Binche' was started in the Lace Centre. They met every month at the Lace Centre and developed an original way to create new designs using the 'old' Binche techniques. This regularly resulted in the publication of a pattern folder much appreciated by lace lovers, such as "DOMINOS EN GRONDEN" ('Dominos and Grounds').
In 2016 they released a folder for the very last time; "Vivaldi" named after the composer of the "Quattro Stagioni", a classic masterpiece of music history. This latest publication, also for sale in this online shop, is without doubt one of the masterpieces of the 'Masterclass Binche' of the Lace Centre.
