Sleek Macrame Planter
Arts & DIY
Macrame plant hangers are everywhere, yet now is your chance to create one with a modern sleekness.
We will begin with intros and wine. Next, I will teach you how to create a stripe using a sophisticated macrame knot. You’ll have the opportunity to create your very own stripe pattern. I will help guide you with designing, knotting and the overall look of your piece. Once your design is complete, you will trim the ends. Everyone will complete their sleek macrame plant hanger during class so it is ready to hang the minute you get home! Your finished piece is generously sized at approximately 5 feet long. This workshop is perfect for anyone wanting a fun, creative experience. Beginners and advanced students are welcome. Grab a friend and join the group!

"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! 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!" - Emily F.
"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." - Erin S.
