Join us on a journey with Penelope Chilvers

From painter to boot creator


We are delighted to be joined on Friday 10th November by Penelope Chilvers.

Over a delicous light breakfast and coffee you can hear Penelope's story. She will be chatting to customers about her incredible journey from painter to boot maker and will be answering your questions.

Born and raised in England, Penelope studied art in London at the Bryan Shaw School of Art. Her Spanish journey began when she was granted a scholarship from the Spanish Ministry of Culture, to complete an MA at Complutense University in Madrid. In Spain her love of artisan craft developed and it was here she decided to pursue the idea of bringing the Spanish riding boot to England. Inspired by her own love of riding, Penelope commissioned a small number of traditional artisans to make the perfect boot. Today this is the boot known as her long tasselled boot and has been worn by the likes of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge

To attend this inspiring talk, you need to RSVP, and the free tickets are on a first come first served basis.
