All you need to learn the art of macrame is two hands and some rope. In this workshop, you will create a mid-size wall hanging that utilizes the most important knots in macrame- the half hitch, square knot, larks heads knots, overhand knots, and half square knots. Once you learn these skills, you will be able to create large and more intricate pieces on your own. Each student will leave class with a completed retro-chic wall hanging, ready to adorn their walls. Wall hangings measure at least 8" x 12". All materials are included: Jennie will provide wooden dowels to knot off of, chunky natural cotton cord, jute, and a selection of wooden beads. Students will leave with an instruction packet and a quick guide to macrame, which includes directions for other knots and techniques not covered in class. All materials, snacks, wine, beverages and 20% off of everything in our shop is included! This event is part of SFMade Week 2019 and National MFG Day.
