About the Course

Make your own macramé plant holder in just one session! Indoor plants are back in fashion and if you love plants but have limited shelf space hanging holders are a wonderful addition to your indoor greenery.
Macramé is a creative knotting technique that can be used for belts and wall hangings traditionally made out of jute, while using nylon cord gives the work a contemporary look. You’ll learn all the basic knots to make straight and twisted cords, as well as adding beads and embellishments, so that you can follow a design or come up with your own original project.
