Join Amanda and Sue Ann for this macrame basics workshop. Participants will leave with their own small, unique wall hanging and knowledge of how to create 3-5 different knot patterns you can use to create additional designs.
Macramé is a French word that means knot; it is one of the oldest forms of art.
The ancient Persians and Assyrians (2300 B.C.) finessed this art with great skill. Later, Arabs brought the art form to Europe, and the Europeans to the Americas, where Caribbean people used it to make their typical knotted hammocks.
Basic macramé has a number of different knots, with the most well known being the square knot and the half knot, that when combined, create borders (overlaid or woven) or braids to decorate bags or fabrics, flower pots, lamps, wall hangings and curtains.
Did you macrame back in the day? It's fun, mindful, empowering and macrame is the new (old) "thing" to use to embellish your interior with the creative, free spirited expression popular in boho style.
