No 7 – Couturier Chatelaine

Tutor Alison Snepp

June 8 - 9 2019
Place Guild House, 565 Canning Highway, Alfred Cove
Time 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Seamstresses working for couturiers in the French ateliers use a different kind of chatelaine to that with which we are familiar.  They don’t want their scissors hanging where they may pierce or cut expensive fabrics, so the scissors are held safely within a pocket that is worn around the neck.


Students attending this workshop will make a chatelaine in this style using 28-count checked evenweave linen and DMC Stranded Cotton.  The techniques are interesting forms of counted thread and surface stitchery embroidery.

Students need some experience of counted thread embroidery prior to doing this workshop.  There is some preparation to be done before the class.


Please note Event times are Saturday 8th June 9.30am to 3.30pm and Sunday 9th June 9.30am to 12.30pm.
