A demonstration workshop on embedding embroidery in acetate will be offered to visitors in partnership with Satoshi Sekimoto, awarded the title of Meilleur Ouvrier de France in Haute Couture Embroidery in 2015.

Furthermore, to celebrate the school’s 10th anniversary, 25 trainees have each created a frame that will be submitted to visitors’ votes to win the Eyewear Craftsmanship Award. The top 3 former trainees who receive the most votes will benefit from additional advanced training.

These eyewear craftsmen from around the world will be present at the booth to share their experiences with visitors.
