The Arts Society Norwich Study Day - Dressing the Chinese Imperial Court
14/03/2018 Wednesday

Speaker David Rosier

David Rosier, a chartered insurer by profession, 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. Since 2004, David has been a regular lecturer to numerous organisations including the Embroiderers' Guilds, oriental art and historical associations, costume societies and the National Trust. 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 and you are invited to bring along your own textiles for review and evaluation. There will be three one hour sessions starting after coffee at 10am and ending 3.30pm approx.
