Macrame Necklace Workshop

Our Glass Room, where you will be painting


Macramé is a form of textile produced using kottting techniques. It is an ancient art and the origin is generally attributed to Arabic weavers during the 13th century, using decorative knots to finish the loose ends of hand-woven textiles.

Join us for our unique and relaxing workshop, where you will learn the skills to create your own beautifully styled, macramé necklaces. You will have the opportunity to make up to 3 pieces of statement jewellery (possible more if you have the time!). Your day will be spent in our Glass Room with tutor Mellisa of Jopp Jewellery.

Experience Level

We welcome all levels of expertise from beginner to the accomplished.

Wet felting Day at Toolerstone, Cheshire

Thank you for such a lovely, ‘relaxing’ and therapeutic day. Myself and my friend Renate enjoyed it so much and are looking forward to completing our ‘masterpieces’ in the garden with some wine!

We came as novices and learned a new skill (well lets hope I can do it a little better next time now I sort of know what I’m doing)! It was a full packed day of learning, eating and enjoying the company of others, some of whom were a little more experienced! Melanie(Craft in the Valley) was very patient with each and everyone of us. I never felt foolish or disappointed with my efforts even when being the first to break a felting needle!

Melanie’s approach to teaching is both calming and informative. She is very clearly exceptionally skilled at all she does.

The venue was a perfect setting, the food was delicious and we enjoyed a lovely walk in the sunshine through the owners beautiful gardens.

Easily the best workshop that I have ever experienced. The welcome, the venue, the workspace, the ambience, Camilla and her friendly staff, the wonderful food, Melanie our lovely tutor and the superb range and quality of the provided materials were all exceptional. I have attended many workshops across the UK and this is the only one that I have found to be totally faultless. Absolute perfection. The cherry on the cake is that I now have a felted landscape, of which I am very proud, thanks to Melanie's friendly, patient and expert guidance.
Thank you all for an amazing day, I will be back.

Response from @:Toolerstone:
