Macrame, enjoying a popular revival, is easy to learn with simple techniques and minimal equipment. Work progresses quickly and items with intricate designs to try at home are limitless including fashion accessories, home decor, baskets, 3-D animal art and festive decorations.
At the workshop you will:
- Learn the basic knots and how to follow a pattern
- Make to take home a small sampler wall hanging
- Practice tips and techniques to create your own designs
- Obtain ideas for your own projects from a variety of ready-made items on display and a range of pattern books to browse through.
As a qualified tutor I ran a number of macrame courses in it's former hey-day of the 1970's and 80's and have continued to be involved in various knotting projects during the years since. It is exciting to now be running new workshops to revive and pass on the skills of this fascinating craft to others.
I will be delighted to answer any queries and provide further information if you would like to give me a call direct or by clicking on the Contact form above.
