DOWNLOAD THE PROGRAMME
Organised by the Comité Colbert and House of Artisans (Qasr Al Hosn), ‘Savoir-faire Conversations’ will showcase film screenings, cross-cultural craft demonstrations, workshops and talks with skilled French luxury artisans and Emirati savoir-faire.
French and Emirati artisans will engage in a conversation – the French experts will give a deeper insight into their crafts - embroidery, gastronomy, silversmithing and leather goods, while Emirati artisans discuss Al Sadu, Khoos, Talli and Khanjar-making.
Christian Dior will also divulge secrets behind the making of the iconic Lady Dior handbag. In their conversation with a practitioner of Talli handicraft, Guerlain's ‘table ladies’ will shed light on the art of sealing and finishing fragrance bottles.
Puiforcat will present the silversmith's planishing technique in counterpoint to the fabrication of a traditional Khanjar dagger by an Emirati artisan. In other dialogues with Emirati artisans, Hermès will focus on master leather and saddle-making skills, Hôtel le Bristol on chocolate-making, Louis Vuitton on painting techniques and Van Cleef & Arpels on its Mystery set.
Demonstrations and master classes will also be held by two embroiderers from Lesage (Chanel) and by expert Sadu weavers.
