  • Check out this place. Lacemakers (volunteers) come to lace and answer your questions. Lace pieces are on display, beautiful pieces, you can buy them if your finances allow you. The pieces are beautiful well below their value!! The most of this visit, the place where the association is located, a 15th century house with sculptures on the faces

  • Magnificent exhibition entitled "creative spirit, the dressing of the bishops revisited". We stumbled upon this exhibition a little by chance by visiting the Cathedral of Bayeux, at the heritage days. Congratulations to the organizers: fascinating Expo we bought the catalogue to prolong the memory.
