Event Overview

WOW your holiday guests with handmade napkins and macrame napkin rings!


Amy from Amy Zwikel Studio is partnering up with Leigh from Indigo & Violet Studio to offer a truly unique workshop experience. We will start by stamping cotton napkins using real leaves and fall foliage. While our napkins are drying, Amy will teach everyone several essential macrame knots in order to craft four macrame napkin rings. You will leave the workshop with four fully completed macrame napkin rings and printed napkins ready to use for your next festive gathering!


This workshop is perfect for anyone looking for a unique, fun and creative experience. No prior macrame or painting experience is required. Grab a friend and join us!

    I had a lot of fun in this class! Amy was well-organized, and her method of showing us how to tie the knots and then observing and providing feedback while we tried on our own worked well. We all finished our plant hangers in the two hour allotted time for the class, and I really appreciated having a final product to take home.

    I really enjoyed Amy's macrame plant hanger making class. She walked through each of the knots with us and was even kind enough to offer us wine. She welcomed us into her home and gave us the tools necessary to create a gorgeous plant hanger. I highly recommend taking any of her classes!

    This was a GREAT class! I have taken several classes through Dabble and this was one of the best. Amy was a great teacher and the environment she creates in her studio is lovely. She thoroughly explained each step and made sure to give individual attention to every student. It was a great balance of learning and fun! I'm excited to display the plant hanging I made and can't wait to try out additional macrame projects in the future.

    Amy was a great instructor. She took the time to teach us the knots, let us practice, and came around to help individually. I went home with something I can’t wait to use in my home!

    Absolutely LOVED this class. Amy was a wonderful teacher, super patient, and just really fun to learn from. My friend and I hit unusually heavy traffic and were unfortunately 30 minutes late. Amy did a great job of bringing us up to speed quickly while still engaging our other classmates. I was surprised how easy macrame is- just like making a big friendship bracelet! Was excited to learn this skill and can't wait to try it again.

    I had such a great time in this class! It's nice to do something new/creative after work with some lady friends or to go and make NEW ones! My friend and I planned to go to this class together, we BYOB'd and left with a great piece and a new skill! Amy was a delightful teacher, her instructions were simple, she helped when we were struggling and was prepared with set up, beads, and even a light snack/water! I highly recommend this class!

    It was a really fun class. Amy is an amazing teacher and I learned a ton. I've since been making my own macrame creations at home!

    Loved the class!! Amy's a great teacher and it was so nice to walk out with a finished piece. The cost of the class was very reasonable.
