Pascal Jaouen (France)
Pascal Jaouen will give a conference about his work on Friday, April 26th from 12h to 13h30 at the TV station with journalist Anna Jaouen.
We have invited the most iconic ambassador of Brittany’s textile heritage…
Pascal Jaouen is an embroiderer and designer who works contemporary wonders with traditional embroidery.
Born in Brittany, and proud of it, he begins his training at a very young age. Passionate about traditional clothing, Pascal travels the region in search of techniques and forgotten stitches. In 1995, Pascal founds the School of Embroidery Art in Quimper, France thus solidifying an important and rich heritage project.
The quality of his work and teaching, notably on the ancient technique known as Glazig, has attracted over 2,000 students.
Over a dozen teachers give courses in 30 different locations in Brittany and elsewhere in France. Pascal’s work, however, does not stop there. He applies his fine craftsmanship to fashion whereby his pieces are presented in the most exclusive embroidery shows.
Pascal’s work is a tribute to tradition and modernity. As such, he is often collaborating with exciting artists, even manufacturers, bringing to the School of Embroidery Art’s Gallery transcendent works of art.
The « Secret Sewing Sisters » & Friends (Australia & Europe)
This not so secret group is made up of 8 Australian quilters, one of whom is the world renowned, our very good friend, Di Ford. What started out as an informal class, taught by Di almost 20 years ago, has turned into a family.
Always looking for a challenge, they decided to reproduce quilts from Jane Lury’s exceptional collection, Labors of Love AND invite their friends Petra Prins, Michèle Beugnon, Anne-Hélène Nedelec and Renée Ferré to join the adventure.
The result? A never before seen exhibition of 12 breath taking quilts.
