Join us for a unique contemporary, weaving workshop and explore the wonders of hand passementerie weaving with passementerie Artist and heritage craft specialist Elizabeth Ashdown MA RCA.
One of the rarest and most special of all textile crafts, passementerie is the art of creating decorative ribbons, trimmings, braids, cords and fringes.
Whether you're interested in interior design, upholstery, 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 different hand techniques, as well as having a go at spinning your own cord! You will also take home your own handloom to continue making your favourites at home!
No prior experience of weaving or of passementerie is required.
