Summer Lecture Series! Workroom Salon!

As part of Tchad’s new role of President of the Haute Couture Club of Chicago, Tchad is offering all members of the club as well as current and past students an invitation to the first lecture salon in a series about workmanship and design.

We will be talking about David Pye’s The Nature and Art of Workmanship.  David Pye was a professor at the Royal College of Art, London for years and wrote …The Nature… to give the artist a way to talk about their work and begin thinking about the different approaches one can take when considering how to execute design through workmanship.

We will be covering the basic vocabulary of his work, examining how artists and creators should be looking at their work, and talking about it.

The lecture and salon will be from 6-9 pm on 12 July, 2019 at Tchad’s workroom.  If you are a current student or member of the Haute Couture Club of Chicago, let us know if you would like to attend – there is room for up to 20 people.
