This workshop playfully explores the classic technique of Passementerie, the traditional trim and ribbon technique which originated in France in the 1600’s, through a modern lens. With an emphasis on object and sculpture, participants will weave a variety of techniques on pre-threaded looms before determining which they would like to pursue further. From Planters to Bookmarks, each participant will end this 3-day workshop with an object of their own design, rooted in Passementerie. A wide variety of colorful rope and cords will be provided; you are encouraged to come prepared with a color palette or mood board in mind, as well as examples of inspirational trims etc. An understanding of basic weave structure and loom-threading is expected as we move from traditional 2-dimensional cloth to 3-dimensional sculptures.
Workshops run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day
Lunch is included for all participants
