About the Course

On this introductory workshop, with the help of local artist Lucy Wayman, you will create your very own 'one of a kind' macramé plant hanger. You'll also be leaving with a new plant and pot, ready to hang in pride of place at home. 
You will learn the basic principles and techniques of macramé, and use 100% cotton rope and a selection of coloured twines to create a hand-crafted plant hanger. A helpful instruction manual will be provided to guide you through your project.
You'll first master the knots on smaller scale pieces, such as key rings and bracelets, getting used to the techniques and ironing out any hiccups. Once you've built up an understand of the knots, you'll move on to designing and making your own bespoke plant hanger.
This 5 hour introductory workshop allows for a more complex understanding of the knots and for you to create more ambitious and unique designs than is possible on our shorter, 3 hour taster workshops. All the knots and techniques learnt in the class will give you the confidence and knowledge to further your own macramé projects at home.
Whether you're a beginner, or have tried macramé before, this workshop will suit you. And it is a must for anyone interested in learning more about the art of macramé. If you have treasured items at home, such as beads, gems, hoops and driftwood, you are welcome to bring these with you, and Lucy will show you how to incorporate them into your design.

Want to review this course?

I really enjoyed my evening with Nichole learning Macrame and was delighted with my finished wall hanging. Nichole was so patient with all of us as we repeatedly asked how to do a certain knot again! Loved the ambient environment with relaxing music and meeting new people. Would definitely recommend.

Response from The Arienas Collective:

Hello Suzanne. Thanks for your lovely review. Nichole is a great teacher and very patient with all of us as we try to master the basic knots. Your plant holder looked amazing, and features in some of our online photos and video! (Thanks for giving us permission to use them.) Hope it's got pride of place in your home - send us a photo of it hanging up if you've time. Best wishes, Lynn x
