David Rosier lived in Hong Kong and worked in China between 1991/2004. Whilst there he assembled a collection of approximately 700 predominantly
Qing Dynasty (1644 1911) Imperial related textiles,
insignia of rank and dress accessories.
This Special Interest Day will provide a comprehensive insight into how highly decorated and expertly created costume and textiles were used at the Chinese Imperial Court to denote the rank and status of the wearer.
There will be a display of relevant court costume from
David's private collection.
Three one hour sessions start after coffee at 10am and ending 3.30pm approx.
The cost of the day is £35.00 including a
2 course lunch. The venue is Park Farm Hotel, Hethersett, where there is free parking.
