Event Overview

This is a special chance to learn macramé and terrariums in one class!

Leigh from Indigo & Violet and Amy from Amy Zwikel Studio are partnering up to offer a truly unique workshop experience. We will begin with intros and BYOB. We will create a macramé plant hanger during the first part of class. Amy will teach a variety of knot techniques and then you will have a chance to create your own unique macramé design. The second half will be dedicated to creating a terrarium. Leigh will teach you the basics of how to layer, design and craft your living arrangements.

Everyone’s terrarium will be unique and individually designed. You will finish the class with a fully completed macramé plant hanger, terrarium and a beautiful experience. Your finished piece is generously sized at approximately 3' long X 1’ wide. This workshop is perfect for anyone looking for a unique, fun and creative experience. Grab a friend and join us!
