Create a fabulous, bespoke macramé wall hanging on this afternoon workshop with Edinburgh artist and sculptor Lucy Wayman.
The workshop will start with the basic principles and techniques of macramé covered on our taster workshop, 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. So you are still welcome to join the workshop as a complete beginner.
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.
