What's included in the price?
The workshop includes all materials but feel free to bring along a favourite piece of driftwood/stick you want to work with for your wall-hanging. You will be provided with a handmade copper frame stand to work on and of course tea, coffee and biscuits. You will also get a little booklet to take home with all the different knots.
Alice is very welcoming and is an encouraging teacher. I enjoyed the macrame workshop very much and have continued to work on my wall hanging. The studio is well equipped and a lovely creative space.
