Pinterest Event: Macrame Plant Hanger
8 Have Dabbled
Arts & DIY
For this special workshop, Dabble is partnering with Pinterest in Chicago.
Amy will teach the group several macrame knot techniques and help everyone practice and perfect each one. Using those knot designs, each person will create their very own plant hanging design. Amy will be available to help with designing, knotting and the overall look of the work. Once designs are complete, we will trim and fray the ends. The final step is to put a plant into the hanger and admire our creative designs! Everyone will complete their unique plant hanging during class so it is ready to hang the minute you get home!
All ages welcome
All macrame materials, a terra cotta pot and plant are included.Cancellation Policy
