P1260052During our regular workshops, the participants delight in creating their own fabric, to wear or to offer, while learning from the others who are each working on their own project.

With the ARTissage workshops, weaving becomes an art of living, bringing together the intelligence of the hands and artistic creativity.

Weaving at home between sessions

P1200691ARTissage has deliberately chosen to break with the traditional approach of craft weaving in France, by choosing to work with folding, portable looms that can be used on any table, but which are also modern, elegant and precise.

Portable looms for nomadic weavers replace the vast looms which are often left idle in the attic.

Between sessions, the weavers take home the looms lent by ARTissage, in the same way that a musician keeps his instrument with him to practice his scales.
