Introduction to macramé at The Arienas Collective creative workshop hub in central Edinburgh
Contact course provider
About the Course
On this introductory workshop with local artist Nichole Fernández, you will begin by learning the four basic knots of macramé.
Having mastered those, Nichole will take you through the steps necessary to create your own plant hanger including how to plan a pattern, measure the correct amount of rope, set up and finish off the project.
You will come away with enough knowledge to create your own macramé wallhangings or plant hangers at home, along with an understanding of the different ropes/cords used in macramé. And Nichole will teach you how to navigate the confusing technical world of rope so you can purchase your own.
You will design and create a macramé wall-hanging plant hanger ready to take home to hang on your wall.

What's included in the price?
All the equipment you will need is provided, and all materials and refreshments are included in the price. And of course you will take home the beautiful wall-hanging plant holder, complete with potted plant, that you have created.
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
