About the Course
On this 5-hour Introduction to macramé workshop with local artist - and green-thumbed plant lover - Lucy Wayman, you will cover all the basics included in our taster macramé workshop plus much more. So you are still welcome to join the workshop as a complete beginner.
We will start with the basic principles and techniques of macramé, allowing you to build your confidence by creating small projects such as a key ring, before moving on to designing and creating your bespoke plant hanger.
Once you feel more confident, you will learn how to calculate rope lengths and plan designs to create your hand-crafted plant hanger using 100% cotton rope, and a selection of coloured twines. A helpful instruction manual will be provided to guide you through your project.
This more in-depth workshop also provides space for people who feel confident with the basics to challenge themselves with more elaborate designs under Lucy's guidance.
If you have any treasured gems such as old beads or drift wood you would like to feature in your design, please bring them along and Lucy will demonstrate a range of possibilities for incorporating them in your piece. All the materials needed to create your plant hanger are included in the price, plus a lovingly nurtured potted plant ready to be displayed in your new creation. With the guidance of green thumbed Lucy, you'll leave with a plant that is perfectly suited to your home, tips on plant care and knowledge of the secrets to your plant's continued success.
The class size is kept small so that Lucy can give you all the support you need.
Please note: The Arienas Collective workshops are run from the first-floor of a Georgian mews house and unfortunately we do not have lift access.
