Weston Turville Historical Society
“A Journey from London to York in 1820”
Hugh Granger
Meeting on Friday 29th September, 2017

September’s talk is from the popular local speaker Hugh Granger.

In May last year we were let down at the last minute by Wessex Archaeology. At short notice, Hugh Granger saved the day with his "Reeves Tale" talk.

For our September meeting, Hugh will tell the tale of an eventful, festive journey from London to York in 1820 from the point of view of a London Gunsmith called Tom Bowman, including several genuine coaching stories, and the origins of many sayings derived from the age of coaching. All the details are accurate: only the names have been changed, to protect the innocent! Hugh speaks on this topic, because his family ran a coaching inn in Hampshire for eight generations.

The meeting starts at 8pm in the village hall and is open to all. Entrance £2 for members and £3 visitors. Doors open at 19:30 for welcoming refreshments. For further information about the Society visit the Society’s web page www.WTHSoc.org.uk or email Secretary@WTHSoc.org.uk

Exhibitions Talk on the Historical Development of Chain Stitch Embroidery to Tambour Beading.
The Historical Development of Chain Stitch Embroidery to Tambour Beading – admission £4 on the door.

This talk by bead couturiers Lesley Coidan & Diana Vernon explores the luxury fashion technique of tambour beading – an embroidery technique used to embellish and enliven garments . Lesley and Diana together run Couture Beading & Embellishment Company, www.couturebeading.com.

They specialise in a variety of couture embellishment techniques, but primarily tambour beading and embroidery for film, theatre and the couture.

They each have over 45 years experience of designing, making and teaching, and are the authors of the book ‘The Art of Tambour Beading & Embroidery’ being published by The Guild of Master Craftsman later this year.

In 1770 Charles Germain de Saint Aubin, embroiderer to Louis XV the King of France, wrote about a new technique that used a hook instead of a needle to work embroidery. This technique was tambour.

In fact the technique was much older, and is thought to have originated first from China or India. This same technique is still used today, and you will have seen many examples of it in theatre, film and couture work, and especially the Royal Wedding and Court dresses.

It is the professional couture method for embroidering with beads and sequins.

This illustrated talk and demonstration will give you an introduction to the techniques of couture tambour embroidery with beads, pearls and sequins, and the historical development of the technique through to its contemporary use today.
