Macramé Craft Workshop with Aaishni
Macramé is a form of textile produced by knotting techniques. While the origin of Macramé is traced to Arabic weavers of the 13th century, it is believed that sailors played a huge role in keeping the art form alive and spreading it to new lands.
Macramé is most popularly used for creating wall hangings for interior decoration purposes. More contemporary products made using Macramé techniques include fashion accessories (like belts, bohemian jewellery), bags, plant hangers, bedspreads and so much more!
In this workshop, you will learn how to create an intricate Macramé wall hanging to adorn the walls of your room!
