Come and embroider a little piece of Venice

As a tribute to Gabrielle Chanel’s trips to Venice, which from the 1920s became one of her favourite destinations as well as a principal source of inspiration, the House of Lesage is offering a participative embroidery workshop. On a cotton canvas more than two metres long is a 19th century map of Venice as seen from the sky. Thanks to the two professional embroiderers present, you will have the chance to embroider a canal in grey-blue, the roof of a palace in ochre, or a part of a garden in cypress green… Together, visitors will collaborate on an immense and collective work.

Embroidery sessions last around 30 minutes and run throughout Homo Faber from 10am to 7pm every day.
