Ever wondered just how trimmings are made?  This 2-day workshop in Norfolk will show you 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. 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.

The first day of each workshop will cover the basic techniques regularly used in hand made passementerie while on the second day students will put those techniques together to complete a tasselled button suitable for a bolster cushion and a decorative acorn.

The course will be held at the Norfolk Creative Arts in Grimston, Norfolk on 2nd/3rd June. For more details click here.
