In this workshop participants will learn how to create handmade tassel fringe that can be used to decorate clothing, fabrics, and accessories as well as to use in their artworks. This involves simple hand wrapping techniques as well as some easy ways to embellish your tassels. You will design and create two tassels from recycled fiber with the option of having one of your creations attached to a large scale installation piece for the Water Stories performance.
