Beginning Macrame: Wall-hangings with Jennie Lennick

All you need to learn the art of macrame is two hands and some rope. In this workshop, you will create a mid size wall hanging that utilizes the most important knots in macrame: the half hitch, square knot, larks heads knots, overhand knots, and half square knots. Once you learn these skills, you will be able to create large and more intricate pieces on your own.

Each student will leave class with a completed retro-chic wall hanging measuring at least 8" x 12".

PLEASE NOTE: There is a materials fee of $10, payable at the start of class. Space is limited, so sign up early!
