Make a macramé bag with Edinburgh artist and sculptor Lucy Wayman

Macramé bag with round wooden handles


Create your own 'one of a kind' macramé bag with the help of Edinburgh artist and sculptor Lucy Wayman.

You will learn the basic principles and techniques of macramé, and use 100% cotton rope and a selection of coloured twines to create a hand-crafted bag. A helpful instruction manual will be provided to guide you through your project.

You'll first master the knots on a smaller scale pieces, key rings and bracelets, getting use to the techniques and ironing out any hiccups. Once you've built up an understanding of the knots, you'll move on to designing and making your own bespoke macramé bag.

This 5 hour workshop allows for a more complex understanding of the knots, and for you to create more ambitious and unique designs. All the knots and techniques learnt in the class will give you the confidence and knowledge to further your own macramé projects. 

Whether you're a beginner, or have tried macramé before, this workshop will suit you. And is a must for anyone interested in learning more about the art of macramé. If you have treasured items at home, such as beads, gems, hoops and handles, you are welcome to bring these with you, and Lucy will show you how to incorporate them into your design.

Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All materials are included in the price, plus a selection of teas, coffees and access to drinking water. You will also have access to all the equipment you need to create your macramé project.
