An architect, a creator, an overthinker and a dog lover. I create macramé products of art and utility. With A keen eye for details and an itchy hand I always find myself in a room with a bunch of coloured cotton cords and a pair of scissors. Do not leave chocolate or your kids around me, you'll never get them back. An extrovert but you wont find anything about my life on Social media. I'm weird that way. Stop by and say Hi if you are too. Cheers!

Macramé is an ancient art of rope knotting. It’s origin goes back to 13th century Arab weavers. Sailors often used their free time and extra ropes to create hammocks or belts using this technique. These were then bartered with, wherever they took a halt. This is how it spread across the world. It then resurfaced in the 1970s gaining popularity for its plant hangers and vests. It must have been pretty popular, because my grandmother knows about it!

 

Modern Macramé now finds its base deep seated in what we millennials like to call “BOHO” decor. In this workshop you’ll see how you can make the most trending lamps this year without struggling too much. Macramé  has as many as 4000 knots. After this workshop you’ll know how to use two basic and most popular knots to begin and complete a project you wish, especially Mason Jar Lamps.
