This class has passed

Macrame is a craft using knots and weaves to make beautiful homewares, clothing and more. Its origins are a bit unsure, some dating it back to the 13th century in Arabia using knot patterns to decorate textiles and others tracing it back to Babylonian times.

It’s a very relaxing and fun hobby and can be done without expensive equipment.

In this class we’ll learn basic knots while making a fun rainbow or geometric or serpentine (we couldn’t decide!) plant hanger We’ll have lots of colours to choose from and the pattern has been designed with beginners in mind.
