ABOUT THIS EVENT
Arts & DIY
In this experience, Layne Eckhardt will be teaching us how to make a beautiful macrame wall hanging. We will be learning and incorporating the clove hitch knot into our designs and Layne will guide us step by step as we create using our current and new knotting skills. All materials are provided to complete a unique piece of art.
Layne Eckhardt is a macrame artist and teacher in Seattle. She creates wall hangings, plant hangers, table runners, and anything else she can imagine from tying knots. Her father was also a macrame artist, and he started teaching her basic knots from the time she was young. Since then, she has been developing and perfecting her craft by learning from other artists and managing her own Etsy shop. For her, macrame is a meditative activity and a way to slow down, focus her thoughts, and be present. Her passion is in sharing this craft with others and finding new ways to be innovative and creative with her own knots. Her designs are featured in her Etsy shop, on Instagram, and in retail boutiques in the Seattle area. When she's not designing and tying knots, she also enjoys decorating her home, reading, and spending quality time with her cats

MORE ABOUT YOUR HOST
We are friends, neighbors, fledgling artists and plant-lovers doing life with our families in the vibrant urban neighborhood of the University District in Seattle, WA. Recently having launched our youngest kids off to full-day school, we are creating space in our lives and our neighborhood for more beauty and creativity. What would it look like to invite more time and space for ourselves in our day to day life? How could we find more beauty in the reality of life? Our families are purposefully rooted in this city that we love and we wanted to make space for creativity and natural elements to bring more balance and beauty to our homes. This was the inspiration for StudioLife. Creating space is a choice and takes practice. We believe that the discipline of creating space in our lives enriches us and benefits those around us, because of this we felt compelled to provide a space that invites others to do the same and we are having a really good time!
