Macrame is a decorative knotting craft that can be used to easily create beautiful and functional pieces of art to decorate your home. In this class, you’ll make a gorgeous wall hanging while learning the five macrame knots that are the foundation of every macrame project – Larks Head, Square Knot, Half Square Knot Sinnet, Double Half Hitch, and Wrap Knot. This old (circa 13th century) technique can also be used to create jewelry, belts, bags, and soft furnishings, and you’ll leave with the knowledge you need to create your own modern pieces. Katrina (also known as the Knotty Professor) will provide all materials and plenty of inspiration to launch your knotty journey.
