For the love of knots, let’s learn about macrame! This class is designed to help beginners learn some basic knots in order to create a plant hanger with soft cotton cord.
You will learn how to make a gathering knot around the ring at the top of your plant hanger, then form the part that holds the pot using square knots and twisted spiral knots. Then you can select a pot to go inside (and I will even bring a few cuttings in case you need a plant). You will love making these plant hangers, and once you have the knot-making skills, you can use them to create your own designs.
Your instructor will provide the following materials:
- Wood ring
- Macrame cord
- Ceramic pot
- Plant cuttings
- Printed instructions
Students are asked to bring:
- snacks (optional)
No experience needed.
Students ages 12 and older are welcome to attend this class. Ages 12-15 must register with another registered adult. Ages 16-17 can register with parent permission, which you can give with an email to email@example.com.
