About your tutor Sally
After working as a photographer for several years, Sally wanted to learn a craft that was more tactile and would help her to relax after a busy day. What started as a small hobby soon grew into a full time hobby and then a business. She now works from home making all sorts of macrame creations from plant hangers to lamp shades, small jewellery pieces to large wall hangings. Sally enjoys making new pieces that she hasn’t tried before and finding new ways to create everyday things. She finds macrame to be meditative and believes that it is a fully accessible mindful craft that everyone should try. She loves how pieces made out of cord can turn out to be so beautiful and intricate and hopes to show more people just how interesting macrame can be.
