Creating something with your own hands, the process of making is so calming and just nourishes your soul, especially in this day and age where most of what we interact with is digital. With macrame it is rewarding to see each knot become part of a larger, beautiful piece, when you use a pattern or when you just experiment and play with the rope and see what happens.
Join me and create your own beautiful and unique macrame pieces and bring texture, warmth or some boho vibe to your home. Macrame has been revived with a tasteful modern appeal adding a softer side of art to your walls.
In this workshop you will learn knots and techniques to create a macraweave, a beautiful combination of macrame and weaving. Here is an example of the project but every creative process is different so you will leave with a unique piece of art and a mind filled with inspiration!
All of the supplies you need will be provided, including natural cotton rope, wooden dowels. You can also bring a branch or piece of drift wood.
No experience necessary. Ages 12 and up welcome.
