Rosalibre - Bat and Rose
When the creator, Cathleen Belleville, set out to develop a new lace technique she listed the use of color, a small number of pairs, and ease and flexibility of working in her wish-list. What emerged was this three-dimensional technique, drawing strongly on Rosaline, Rococo and Duchesse, which enables most lacemakers to produce striking results, easily and quickly. Patterns and diagrams will be provided in class, including this never before published version of Cathy's bat. We have begun making Rosalibre in Lizbeth thread, as well as the smaller original threads, giving further flexibility to this lace.
