2.5 hour workshop
We love tassels. Love ’em. I’d marry them if I could – but I watched a documentary once about a woman who married the Eiffel Tower and to be honest, married life with an inanimate object seemed a bit thankless for a woman as needy as I am.
So let’s wear them instead? Yeah, let’s. We’ll take you through the basic tassel making stages and then hit you up with all the tiered tassel, doorknob wraps and wrap knots you could ever dream of. Let’s take these tassels to the next level!
This workshop is perfect for beginners to more experienced crafters looking to play around with some of our beautiful yarns in a beautiful setting and going home with some new skills to make the most luscious, decorative fibre sculpture you’ve, like, ever seen.
We’ll help you put your tassels together as a necklace or keyring and you can make as many styles as you like throughout the course of the evening. Get experimental with our yarns after you’ve mastered all the techniques and go tassel mad.
We’re really excited to be back at the Royal Society of Sculptors in South Kensington, it’s such a beautiful setting and space for making and we can’t wait to share it with you. Oh and did we mention there’s going to be a bar! That’s right, a bar. A bar and fibre sculpture? I mean, hello best night ever.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
About your host, The London Loom
The London Loom is a weaving studio in Hackney in East London, created by Francesca Kletz in 2016. The London Loom was founded to build a community of people who love making things with their hands and appreciate how good it is for you.
At The London Loom we want to encourage people to indulge in creating for pure satisfaction and fun. We hold community workshops and smaller classes in our studio where we welcome adults and children to work alongside each other; we believe that creativity and inspiration can come from anywhere, it’s not limited to age or background.
Francesca has been teaching weaving and other textile crafts since 2015 and has taught weaving workshops for Tate Modern, Southbank Centre, Scouts, Hackney Arc and the Royal Society of Sculptors and has appeared in (amongst others) Mollie Makes, Stylist, PomPom Quarterly, Time Out (on the front cover!) The Telegraph and is the author of Weave This (Hardie Grant 2018). The London Loom was also named Mollie Makes Best Craft Workshops of 2019.
Ultimately we want to share the good that we feel from learning new skills and making beautiful, tactile things. We teach and host a range of ‘alternative craft’ classes as well as our beginners weaving workshops, as long as there’s something to make, new people to meet and obnoxiously loud laughter to be had, we’re happy.
