On this 5-hour Introduction to macramé workshop with local artist Lucy Wayman, you will cover all the basics included in our taster workshop plus much more. So you are still welcome to join the workshop as a complete beginner.
We will start with the basic principles and techniques of macrame, allowing you to build your confidence by creating small projects such as a key ring, before moving on to designing and creating your bespoke wall hanging.
Once you feel more confident, you will learn how to calculate rope lengths and plan designs to create your hand-crafted wall hanging using 100% cotton rope and a selection of coloured twines. A helpful instruction manual will be provided to guide you through your project.
The workshop also gives the space for people who feel confident with the basics to challenge themselves with more elaborate designs under Lucy's guidance. This workshop will also cover 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.
Please note: The Arienas Collective workshops are run from the first-floor of a Georgian mews house and unfortunately we do not have lift access.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

If you're inspired to continue using your new-found macramé skills at home, spools of 100% cotton rope will also be available to buy.
Lucy and Lynn have been absolutely fantastic. I have learnt so much during this inspiring workshop and it has given me the knowledge to keep working at home on my own. The space is welcoming and a lovely buffet is provided with plenty of teas, coffee and cakes. I will go back soon to try another of the many workshops they run. Highly recommended! Thank you, Arienas Collective, for being so awesome!!
Wow! Thank you so much for this really lovely review. I'm so glad Lucy inspired you to bring macramé into your life, and that you enjoyed your time in our home-based workspace (which I hope will be open to the public again very soon).
