Event Overview

You've been dying to learn macrame and now is your chance to create a beautiful, textured wall hanging alongside a professional artist in her home/art studio!

We will begin with intros. Next, I will teach you the most versatile macrame knot. Using the square knot, you will follow the pattern I designed to create a professional quality creation.  I will help guide you with designing, knotting and the overall look of your piece. Once your wall hanging is complete, you will trim and fray the ends. Everyone will complete their unique wall hanging during class so it is ready to hang the minute you get home! Your finished piece is generously sized at approximately 2 feet wide by 4 feet long. This workshop is perfect for anyone wanting a fun, creative experience in a charming Chicago gem. Grab a friend and join the group!
