About the Course
Working with a contemporary and rich colour palate of high quality linen yarns and sets of wooden tassel moulds, you will learn the traditional techniques for making an elegant multiple mould tassel, using basic techniques such as how to roll a wooden tassel mould with cord as well as 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.
