Crafts and technical visits, Artist
At the Pascal Jaouen embroidery school, learn to embroider by combining tradition and contemporary design.The Pascal Jaouen embroidery school organises embroidery classes all year round. In summer, courses lasting two to five days are organised. No prior knowledge is required. Under the watchful eye of two teachers, you’ll discover the main techniques of traditional tambour embroidery: Lunéville, Richelieu or long and short stitch. You’ll also learn chain stitch, scallop stitch, etc. Even children can try, from the age of eight. For a simple initiation, the school organises discovery days to learn Glazig embroidery, the institution's flagship technique. Designer of haute-couture collections, Pascal Jaouen is a master in the art of this Breton embroidery, which uses silk thread on two layers of fabric, linen and linen cloth. Another way to become one with Brittany.
