Macrame Wall Hanging - Beginner

During this session, we will work together to create a medium size wall hanging. You will be introduced to the basic knots commonly used in macrame, and how to combine them into a design.

To Bring/Important Notes

  • Homework: pick a design from the workbook for the session (workbook is linked here)
  • wooden dowel or driftwood approx 12" (or longer) in length (driftwood should be cleaned in advance - rinsed and baked at 235 degrees for 2 hours in your oven).
  • 12 pieces of 5mm (3/16) 3 strand rope cut into 10 foot lengths (or equivalent rope)
  • You will need a bar (such as a rolling clothes rack) or a you can improvise with a chair placed on top of a table - somewhere you can stand/sit comfortably and hang you macrame to work from (see picture)
  • A couple of pieces of 1-foot twine or sturdy yarn.

    Creating has been a calling for me since I was very young, I started with crochet at the age of 8 and was introduced to Macramé in my early teens. It wasn’t until later when a friend inspired me to take my passion for fibre art to the next level.  Whenever possible I strive to use materials made in Canada, I value local makers and believe in collaboration. I am continually inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds us in British Columbia. When I am not making, I am a nurse, mama of 3 kiddos + 2 dogs and a lizard, retired rugby player (now coaching). Creating gives me the chance to escape and I love seeing what my hands make.
