The History of Parchment Craft

 Believed to have originated during the 15th century in Europe it appears that it was predominantly practised in Catholic communities. Mainly utilised in making religious cards, bookmarks and gift cards as well as ornate picture frames. It is said that young girls would receive a parchment craft gift on receiving their first communion.

As with many hobbies, customs and traditions, as missionaries travelled the world the intricate art of parchment craft followed even as far as South America and beyond. Although the hobby faded away somewhat, it regained favour again in the 18th century. The cards became larger and wavy borders and perforations were added.By the 19th century floral themes and cherubs were added along with ‘embossing’.

In later times, as with vacuum cleaners collectively being called ‘Hoovers’ (which of course is inaccurate as Hoover is just a make), Parchment Craft is often referred to as Pergamano. Of course all parchers will know Pergamano is a trade name of a tool maker for parchment craft as is PCA and others that are not so well known.

You will learn from a tutor either in a class or from a DVD how to do Tracing, Embossing, Stippling, Perforating, Cutting and also Colouring in different mediums. You will also be taught which tools do the right job.

Please take a look at our Pinterest page.

It is ever evolving. Quite fascinating, totally engrossing and a very rewarding hobby. Christine has taken the craft to a whole new level along with Alison Yates and have embraced 'parchment art'. This is colouring on both sides of the paper. It is absolutely stunning. Their website is www.parchmentart.co.uk
