LCW Maker Demonstrations:  Couture Craftsmanship - Goldwork  photo

Showcasing skills from over 20 years of running the Santa Clara Embroidery workshop, Master Artisan José Luis Sánchez Expósito will demonstrate the gold and silver embroidery techniques used to dress sacred objects as well as high fashion projects.

José Luis Sánchez Expósito began embroidering at the age of 16 for the villages and brotherhoods of Córdoba. He then moved to Seville, where he had the opportunity to work in some of the best workshops in the capital. Nearly 20 years ago he established his own atelier, Bordados Santa Clara

Supported by the Homo Faber Fellowship, a life-changing programme which facilitates the transmission of knowledge and skills from one generation to the next.
