Anna trained in woven textiles and now makes trimmings to commission for antique dealers, furniture restorers, interior decorators and heritage organisations. She is the author of The Tassels Book and Decorative Tassels.
In this one-day course you will be working with a contemporary and rich colour palette of high quality linen yarns and sets of wooden tassel moulds.
You will learn the traditional techniques for making an elegant multiple mould tassel. You will be using basic methods such as how to roll a wooden tassel mould with cord, cover a mould vertically with yarn, make a wired cut skirt, and assemble the whole tassel with a 3 or 4 strand suspension cord.
You will also learn the fascinating craft of how to spin cords using a special four-hook cord-twisting tool.
