Tiny Acorns to Terrific Tassels! Passementerie Workshop at Eau Brink Studio. With Clare Hedges.
Ever wondered just how trimmings are made? This 2-day workshop enables you to learn the basics of hand-made Passementerie, and let you try your hand at making a tasselled button and an acorn similar to those made for a bed at Marchmont House, Berwickshire.
Who is this for?
Ideal for anyone interested in textile crafts, as well as professional curtain makers and interior designers. Come along and learn new techniques to create unique finishing touches for your projects or just gain a better understanding of what’s involved in the making process, and the options that bespoke Passementerie can give your clients, giving you a better understanding of the design process involved in bespoke work, making the commissioning process easier to navigate.
What will we learn?
Day one will cover the basic techniques regularly used in hand made passementerie. Then day two you will put those techniques together to complete a tasselled button suitable for a bolster cushion and a decorative acorn.
