Macramé plant or wall hanging workshop
On this two-in-one macramé workshop with Edinburgh artist Lucy Wayman, you can choose to create a plant or pot hanger, or stay on to work on a longer wall hanging project. The workshop will start with the basic principles and techniques of macramé, allowing you to build your confidence by creating small projects such as a key ring, before moving on to designing and creating your plant hanger, or bespoke wall hanging. Once you feel more confident, you will learn how to calculate rope lengths and plan designs to create your chosen hand-crafted macramé project using 100% cotton rope and a selection of coloured twines. A helpful instruction manual will be provided to guide you through your project. If you opt for the 3-hour plant hanger project your workshop will finish at 4pm. This two-in-one workshop also gives extra time for people who feel confident with the basics to challenge themselves with more elaborate designs under Lucy's guidance, and will also cover suggestions for home dyeing techniques so that you can elevate your newly finished piece with colour at home if you wish. If you have any treasured gems such as old beads or drift wood you would like to incorporate into your design please bring them along and Lucy will show you a range of possibilities for including them in your piece. The class size is kept small so that Lucy can give you all the support you need.
