From 19 september to 15 november 2020 : Brigitte Chappaz, Fauna and Flora. Villandry in silk thread
In the Villandry gardens, passion and dedication come together to foster and uphold extraordinary creativity with plants; both elements feature in the embroideries of Brigitte Chappaz, who draws inspiration from the flora and fauna surrounding the château.
A passionate collector, for many years she has been patiently unearthing antique silks and lace, which she skilfully embroiders, creating motifs, large-scale tapestries, small tableaux or even bound books. Through her needle, she brings the Villandry countryside and its fauna alive. With silk yarn, forgotten or unusual stitches and antique beads, this autumn Chappaz will be sharing her expertise and creativity in the château’s exhibition gallery.
Exhibition included in the château’s entrance fee
