About the Event
Make your own macramé hanging basket/pot with Faline and Tanja Pauls.
Macramé is a very old decorative knotting craft that anyone can do with a bit of practice! It’s a great way to create beautiful and functional art pieces to decorate your home with vintage flair. You have probably seen it many times before, perhaps without even noticing; in leather and fabric belts, jewellery, wall hanging, hanging baskets and friendship bracelets.
Macramé can be done with virtually any kind of rope, including wool, linen, cotton and leather. We will use a cotton cord.
In this beginners' workshop, Faline will focus on simple hanging baskets, introducing you to some basic materials and techniques while creating a beautiful piece of knotted art to take home. Once you understand how to make the knots, you can create your own designs and create many more creatively knotted things at home.
This session is creative, 100% hands-on and not at all messy :)
Please bring your own plant pot to create a macramé hanging basket for. Alternatively, you could just come along to learn the basic technique and make something at home in your own time.
Limited to 10 participants 8 years and older (kids under 10yo must be accompanied by an adult).
Registration is essential.
