Great to be part of #100womenartists at the Claydon Estate today. This was the launch for @bucksartweeks next month, with events happening to coincide with 100 years since some women were allowed to vote.
Today I demonstrated glove making alongside other creative activities on offer - painting, embroidery and exhibitions.
Fab weather too.
Hermès at Work @hermes
Here we have The Glover.
He specialises in working and cutting the lamb skin leather for Hermès gloves.
And he only works with damp leather so it is supple enough to work and stretch.
Naturally, it’s all handmade and their gloves are lined with silk or cashmere (thats’ all hand spun/woven). 👏🏼🧤 .
Wait. What??? 😱
