Do you know your fileter from your bichonner and chantourner? You’ll learn the secret language of the Hermès ateliers at an upcoming pop-up event.

Ever wonder what it might be like to look in on Hermès artisans as they work away in their ateliers in France? Wonder no more. Later this month, Hermès is bringing its pop-up event to Vancouver’s Jack Poole Plaza — and everyone is invited.

Vancouver is the 35th stop on the Hermès at Work traveling exhibition, which will feature some of the craftspeople behind the iconic scarves and bags working away in a glass-walled atelier of sorts set up in Coal Harbour. Visitors will see the famous Hermès silk scarf printed before their eyes, and iconic objects such as handbags, saddles, fine jewellery and watches brought to life. The free event will give visitors a unique insight into the French house’s traditions and values, as well as the opportunity to meet and chat with artisans.
