What’s it all about?

Learn how to give new life to old fabrics! Instead of sending it all to landfill, turn your textiles into macramé masterpieces.

Macramé, or the art of knotting, is having a swift revival since the 70s. It’s easy, affordable, you don’t need any tools and can spice up any room with a wall art or planter.

Instead of making our planters with rope, we’ll also be learning how to make your own t-shirt yarn so you can turn those daggy old t-shirts into gorgeous macramé planters. Learn two skills in one fun class!

What will we cover?

We’ll be learning:

  • How to make your own t-shirt yarn out of old t-shirts. You can use this yarn to crochet, knit, macramé and do all sorts of other crafts.
  • Once we have our yarn ready, we’ll learn the basic knots to make a planter including the half knot, 4 strand braid and square knot.

Please bring an old t-shirt to make the yarn (it works best with no embroidery and no ribbed cotton).
