Te koop via @masters_and_crafters. PAS-GOLD / kunstwerk. Een perfect cadeau voor de feestdagen. Dit handgeweven kunstwerk is geweven in de ‘passement’ techniek. Passement is de kunst van het weven van decoratieve linten. Een verloren gegane techniek die ik nieuw leven ingeblazen heb, maar dan in een modern jasje. Dit kunstwerk is ingelijst in een zwarte box die zowel neergezet als opgehangen kan worden. Het kunstwerk komt hierdoor nog beter tot zijn recht.
Elk kunstwerk is uniek en wordt slechts in 1 exemplaar gemaakt.
Een mooi, uniek en origineel cadeau dus !

PAS-LOVE is a large handwoven wallhanging in silk, wool and cotton. This unique and one-of-a-kind wallhanging would look great on your wall and the ‘golden’ rings gives your interior a luxurious touch. It’s woven in passementerie. More photos can be found on my Instagram account, and in my blog article I explain more about this type of weaving.

Passementerie comes in different shapes and sizes. Normally, passementerie is small so you can sew it onto dresses, jackets, curtains and upholstery.
One of the most famous passementerie companies is Verrier in Paris. They make the most gorgeous passementerie you can imagine.
Because it’s a very time-consuming craft, it has become endangered.
I am autodidact and I tried learning passementerie by viewing the photos on the internet. But that didn’t get me much further.
I came across Elizabeth’s website and subscribed for her online zoom Passementerie Masterclass. Elizabeth Ashdown MA RCA is an artist based in South East England. She creates contemporary, hand woven artworks using the endangered craft of Passementerie. You should definitely check-out her website and Instagramaccount. It’s a burst of great design and gorgeous colors.
What did I learn ?
Elizabeth starts her course with explaining what passementerie is. How you can give it a personal twist and how to set up your weaving. You can use a frame loom, or as I did, my large 16-shaft Ashford loom.
The sett you use for your warp is very dense. So you don’t see the weft threads for the basic ribbon.
She explains what a picot, scallop and crete is. You weave together with her (and all the other participants) live, your first design. In between you can ask questions and she explains the do’s and don’ts very clearly.
I have woven 2 different designs on a single warp/ribbon.
You can go crazy when you work with different wefts and with 2 warps/ribbons. Is it as complicated as it looks? Well, you certainly need to be very focused on which weft, ribbon, color you will use to make your design look great.
In my left warp/ribbon I used a wider sett then the warp/ribbon on the right. As you can see the right ribbon looks better because there are no ‘gaps’. Ofcourse, gaps can be a design feature if you plan it carefully.
Let’s get crazy
With passementerie you can get as crazy as you like. There are no limits to what you can use. Below are a few examples of try-outs. I made them with recycled household-stuff.
Learn an endangered craft
Bring passementerie back to live. If you like to know more about how to weave it, I can highly recommend Elizabeth’s Masterclass. She’s a fantastic and brilliant weaver, a good teacher and a very nice and helpful person.
Thank you Elizabeth, it was really fun learning passementerie !
Weaving with strips of old sheets is a good way to re-use old curtains, bedsheets or old table linens.
Rip some old sheets in long ribbons and weave with them. You can leave the ends hanging on both sides as a design feature, or you can weave them in. It’s fun doing, weaving goes very fast en the result is amazing. Turn your old sheets or curtains into a new piece of fabric by weaving with strips. Make place mats, table runners, rugs, potholders or even cushion covers with your old sheets or curtains. I combined bed sheets with grey cotton cord and regular cotton yarn. You have to warp your loom with a slightly wider sett. I threaded my loom for a Monks Belt technique.
