Craft in the picture
A few months ago, a group of five enthusiastic women started the professional training Broderie d’Art at the Dutch Couture Academy. Under the heading “The Couture & Craftsmanship Concept” they not only discover the beauty of haute couture embroidery in the Parisian tradition, but they are also delving into their personal niche: that place where all their knowledge, interests, skills and training come together. in a way that is unique. They then investigate how they can generate income with this.
On Friday afternoon, July 1, these students will receive their first certificate. With their starting portfolio they show in a small exhibition what is involved before an embroidery is completed. Sign up using the form at the bottom of this page!
Embroidery with a rich variety of materials
Typical for Broderie d’Art is the enormous variety of materials that are used. Not only needle and thread are the means of communication, but also beads, sequins, stones, feathers and all kinds of ribbon. Even fluorescent plastic is finding its way into couture dresses…
There are so many facets to take into account: colour, shape, volume and shine to name a few. How do you do this? You will learn that during The Couture & Craftsmanship Concept.
Part of the success of this vocational training lies in the exchange of ideas and experiences with other students. After all, you rarely find people in your own environment with the same interest (and drive!) to build something with this. And because most of the students are over 30, each has already had an education and often work experience from various directions. Students therefore experience it as particularly valuable to spar with others about what they are passionate about.
From Idea to Design
If you just want to learn a few new stitches, this program is not for you. We dive much deeper into the matter: where do you get inspiration from? And how do you translate that inspiration into a beautiful embroidery design? We work with a mood board as a basis for this. This mood board is a way to visually communicate your idea: with your customer or client, for example. Louise has developed the mood board below that became the starting point for a design.
