Macrame Wall Hanging
Wednesday 13th July 10am - 12.30pm
Macrame is one of the many crafts being revived by those who love working with their hands and is being transformed from a 1970s relic into a hot, trendy art form.
A versatile form of fibre art Macrame can be used to make everything from jewellery to plant holders and wall hangings.
On the workshop you will be shown how to create different knots to start with and how to add wooden beads for a complete Boho look then go on to produce a lovely knotted wall hanging . So you will have some samples to take away and your beautiful Macrame wall hanging masterpiece too.
The cost of this workshop is inclusive of all materials.
