What’s it all about?
Let’s make beautiful wall decorations out of old fabric and t-shirts! Fashion waste is one of the biggest contributors to the landfill and we all have a few ratty t-shirts laying around we never wear… so in this class, we’ll learn how to make t-shirt yarn as well as how to do beautiful macrame- weaved mandala wall art to brighten any room. We’ll use traditional and modern styles as well as a selection of yarns to make your piece unique.
What will we cover?
We’ll be learning:
- How to make t-shirt yarn out of old t-shirts. You can use this yarn to crochet, knit, macramé and do all sorts of other crafts.
- Using t-shirt yarn we’ll learn the basics of weaving and circular macrame as well as some inspiration of contemporary styles. We’ll learn lark’s head, hitch and double hitch knots and net weaving among other things.
- We’ll get started on our own wall hanging!
