Silken Soutache Braid textile weekend course

Fri 28 Oct 2016 @ 19:00 - Sun 30 Oct 2016 @ 15:00

£375

Discover the sensational sewn craft of Soutache which integrates silken braid, cabouchons, beads and other decorations to create stunning wearable embellished pieces.

Soutache is an elaborate textile craft dating from the 15th century. Seamstresses used a dual corded silken braid integrating sparkling cabouchons, pearls and crystals to embellish and trim the luxurious clothes of the wealthy, rich and famous. Today Soutache is seen as the decorative braid in the dress uniforms of service personal.

No matter whether this craft is new to you, or you have ventured into the wonderful world of Soutache before, here is your opportunity to develop your skills. You will produce a spectacular decorative piece, while you relax for a couple of days, meeting like-minded people and making friends. And you will leave with your own original example of this highly creative craft.
