Join Susana Cunha, fibre artist & founder of bohemian-inspired brand Tent Living, for a evening at the Forge discovering the joys of this much loved technique.
Macrame is a form of textile-making that uses knots rather than weaving or knitting. In this class you'll learn macrame basics, including how to choose the right material for your piece, how to get started, how to create four macrame knots, how to use knots to create a pattern and how to customise or design your own pattern for future projects. You'll leave the class with a beautiful wall-hanging made from recycled cotton rope and hand-collected local wood...and an addictive new hobby!
Susana uses traditional macrame and weaving techniques with a modern spin to create unique wall-hangings that incorporate natural materials. Her work can be found on Etsy, NOTH as well as her own website.
Fizz & nibbles will be served
