About the Event
Be part of the macrame and weaving gang and come and make a stylish boho wall hanging. Join Christine at this two hour workshop and learn to make this bang-on-trend piece of wall art.
Working with a 20cm diameter metal copper hoop Christine will show you how to prepare the hoop with simple macrame techniques to create the basis for the weave and fringing then using a mixture of beautifully textured wools and fibres you will create a wonderfully tactile weave using a variety of weaving techniques including soumak, looped and rya knots.
