This new workshop, designed to introduce you to the versatility and fascination of this ancient craft, is for complete beginners or for those wishing to refresh their knowledge and skill. Workshop dates are flexible and will be run on demand, so please let me know if you would like to be kept informed of these.

Macrame, enjoying a popular revival, is easy to learn with simple techniques and minimal equipment. Work progresses quickly and items with intricate designs 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
- Be provided with a list of useful resources
- Obtain ideas for your own projects from a variety of ready-made items on display and numerous 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.

Numbers are limited to ensure maximum individual attention. The workshop is being held at Framin'Art, 35 High Street, Downham Market, Norfolk, but please book your place direct with me by phone or by clicking on the Contact form above.

What's included in the price?

Materials and equipment are included in the cost, but please bring your own tape measure and scissors to work with.

Tea, coffee and sugar are also provided.
