Saturday 2nd March
Passementerie is the art of creating decorative ribbons, trimmings, braids, cords and fringes. Whether you're interested in interior design, accessories, fashion design, or fine art, this workshop will teach you the introductory passementerie weaving skills you need to create your own fabulous hand woven designs bursting with colour, texture and pattern.
You will create 2 different hand woven contemporary passementerie designs, each design exploring a different hand technique. For this workshop, you will be learning how to create passementerie on a frame loom. Also, you will learn how to hand spin your own cords to use within your weaving.
At the end of the workshop, you will also come away with a learner pack including instructions & resources for creating further designs.
No prior experience of weaving is required.
Materials are included, lots of beautiful threads and your own weaving loom which is yours to keep.
This class includes a break for an hour for lunch.
