Macrame is a very satisfying and versatile hobby, and this class is a great introduction to the craft. You'll learn the basic skills you need to create sennits, or chains of knots, and add semi-precious stone beads to create your own unique macrame jewellery, while enjoying a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and a cup of tea (and biscuits, of course!). Take home your own beautiful bracelet and a desire to make more!
Suitable for complete beginners, you will be guided through every step by Wendy, owner of The Little Craftery, and life-long crafter.
The workshop runs for approximately one-and-a-half hours. Enjoy a chat with like minded people and learn some new skills! All materials and refreshments are included in the price.
Please visit our website via the link above for more details and to book online.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All materials, tea and biscuits are included in the price. You will take home the bracelet you made, and a booklet with written instructions and diagrams to help you make more at home.

I love going to Wendy's, it's always comfortable and easy crafting. No pressure even when you get it wrong, Wendy is there with help and a solution.
I bought loads of extra wires to make more at home for presents for the family. Really different and very simple to make, with a choice of colours and shapes so you don't get stuck with someone else's choices.
Always enjoy Wendy's classes.
Not new to macramé, but have never made a wreath before.
Given me lots of inspiration for further projects.
This was my first try at macrame. Wendy was really welcoming and helped us all as needed. Her instructions are really clear so it was hugely enjoyable and a place we could learn and have fun together. The plant hanger looks very professional. I will definitely be back for another course and with friends too.
The Little Craftery shop offers a quaint environment to do your craft session. Wendy was very welcoming and nurtured us through the steps to complete our beautiful bracelets. Definitely will be using her for xmas presents for family and will be doing other sessions.
A very enjoyable morning learning macrame. A relaxed atmosphere and excellent tuition with patience if you where a bit slow on the technique! I even have a professional looking end product.
I certainly recommend this course to others… Thank you Wendy!
I made this bracelet before the Covid restrictions, and it was my first attempt at Macrame. I gave the bracelet to my sister and she loves it, very pleased as she is very difficult to please. And I enjoyed making it.
I have done several classes with Wendy and am never disappointed, she is welcoming and patient, she needs to be with me I'm afraid. I do a lot of crafting but always go to Wendy to learn new crafts.
She gives me an excellent basis on which to build skills to go and make other things, or indeed teach others at church.
I have made a few things with Wendy and whilst I am a 'seasoned' crafter, Wendy always finds something new that intrigues me.
The Macrame feather was my second attempt at Macrame and even though Wendy had to tell me several times where I had gone wrong, she never lost patience with me. Just corrected where I went wrong and off we went till next time.
Due to Covid, her classes are smaller than usual but even so they are fun, I would recommend The Little Craftery to anyone who wants to learn a new craft.
Had a lovely time learning a new craft, fabulous environment and lovely teacher. Would highly recommemd.
When you're learning from scratch it's reassuring to have someone watching and guiding you through the tricky stages. Wendy was friendly and attentive which meant mistakes were picked up quickly and corrected. The atmosphere was relaxed and convivial. I ended up with a piece of craft that I'm proud of and feel confident to attempt it again on my own. Thank you.
Wendy is a calm and patient teacher, and everyone came away with a lovely macrame bracelet along with a new skill!
I enjoyed this so much I have booked into the macramé wall hanging class.
The class was well taught and I am pleased with what I produced.
What a lovely Macramé bracelet class where I learned a new creative skill on a wet Sunday morning. Wendy is very patient (just as well as I seemed to be the last one to finish every time) and very knowledgeable. I left the class eager to show off my new bracelet (which looked shop-bought, in a good way!) As soon as I arrived home I showed my daughter how to make a bracelet with the kit I bought from Wendy. Watch out everyone this Christmas, guess what you're going to get from me??!!
A very good course. Easy to learn thanks to Weny’s teaching and patience. Very relaxed and nice friendly atmosphere. Time goes very quickly and it’s informative and enjoyable. This is the second course I’ve had and will certainly be joining more in the future.
Well taught and just the right number of other students
I really enjoyed this class and would like to thank Wendy for all her help. I didn’t manage to complete my Macrame and have booked another session in order to go back and hopefully finish off.
The classes are small and everyone is really friendly which helps put you at ease.
I'm really happy with my bracelet. Really enjoyed the class. Looking forward to the next one.
I wasn't sure I would be able to do it, but Wendy is very calm and patient and made it very easy. I've made a few more at home and I'm getting quicker. Definitely recommend. *****
I really enjoyed my macrame lesson on Monday with Wendy. Definitely going to be making some bracelets for friends over the next few weeks. Thank you for the tea and biscuits.
Great fun, small group and friendly. Looking forward to booking another workshop.
Wendy is a very enthusiastic and patient teacher. She is very friendly and knowledgable. I look forward to another craft workshop soon!

Cute little craft shop, run by a patient lady. I was a bit wary of trying something new but I thoroughly enjoyed it, and Wendy was eager to explain and help as we worked. I am pleased with my bracelet and it has taught me a new craft which always opens up new ideas for me. I look forward to attending more classes. Thank you Wendy x
Intimate location. Instructive and fun. Happy and proud of my bracelet. Will be going back to try different classes x
Thankyou Wendy for todays class. I really enjoyed making my bracelet.
Wendy is a great help, very knowledgeable and patient teacher. The craft shop is a great light space with ample of room and even provides a nice hot drink and sweet treat. I would definitely recommend her excellant workshops.
Looking forward to coming and trying more classes.
Thank you Wendy for setting up such an enjoyable craft afternoon! It was both relaxing and fun making the macrame bracelet in your lovely studio, with very pleasant company and your most patient teaching. You make a great cup of tea too! I shall certainly book more courses with you and I would thoroughly recommend this macrame class to everyone! Having bought several little macrame kits from you, I came home and made another bracelet, whilst at the same time showing a friend how to make one herself too! Success all round - thank you so much Wendy!
Brilliant one and a half hrs spent making bracelet love it thank you Wendy x
I had a lovely time making my bracelet. The class was well taught - it was so nice having such a patient teacher who explained things clearly. The other ladies doing the course were friendly as well so it made it more fun. Thank you.
Had a lovely time, my bracelet looks great and Wendy was really nice and helpful. I would come back.
Really lovely little craft shop. enjoyed my class there. A very patient teacher and I'm thrilled with my bracelet. Looking forward to coming back for another class!
