What you'll do

Come and visit my studio in the heart of rural Norfolk. I’ll explain my craft to you, while we look at the looms and examples of recreating heritage pieces, as well as some examples from the antique sample books I saved from a skip! I’ll explain the tools and techniques involved in making tassels and you will end the visit by making your own unique key tassel in the colour of your choice in my farmhouse garden, weather permitting.

Clare

I grew up watching my father at the loom, and can’t remember a time I couldn’t weave. Like him, I’m a weaver and maker of all kinds of tassels and trimmings, known as Passementerie, working with high end interior designers for homes of all types. I specialise in heritage projects; my work can be seen in many National Trust properties around the country as well as churches and other public buildings. I have featured in The World of Interiors magazine and in the “Living National Treasure” series on Endangered Crafts in Country Life magazine.

Where you'll be

We will be based in my working studio where I produce all my trimmings. The studio is quite small so I'll be hosting a maximum of 2 guests at a time. The studio is not open to the public at any other time.

Things to keep in mind

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
