Would you like to learn the art of passementerie? One of the rarest and most special of all textile crafts, passementerie is the art of creating ornate ribbons, trimmings and fringes.
Whether you're interested in interior design, accessories, or fashion, this 2 part live, online masterclass will teach you the introductory passementerie weaving skills you need to create your own fabulous hand woven trimmings bursting with colour, texture and pattern. Traditional passementerie designs are interpreted for contemporary frame loom weaving in this masterclass that is designed for beginner and experienced weavers alike.
Using simple equipment and materials, you will create 4 different hand woven passementerie designs in the form of a sampler, each design exploring a different technique. After this workshop you will be able to use your new found skills to create all manner of hand woven ribbons and trimmings.
No expensive or unusual materials and equipment is required - just a simple frame loom, some yarns and some ribbons or cords. A full materials list will be available to download once you have booked your place.
Prior to the Masterclass, you will receive a comprehensive learner pack (emailed to you as a PDF) detailing the designs we will be making during the classes. This pack is yours to keep for life.
