Macrame Necklace Workshop
28 September 2022 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm BST£95.00
Macramé is a form of textile produced using kottting techniques. It is an ancient art and the origin is generally attributed to Arabic weavers during the 13th century, using decorative knots to finish the loose ends of hand-woven textiles.
Join us for our unique and relaxing workshop, where you will learn the skills to create your own beautifully styled, macramé necklaces. You will have the opportunity to make up to 3 pieces of statement jewellery (possible more if you have the time!). Your day will be spent in our Glass Room with tutor Mellisa of Jopp Jewellery.
We welcome all levels of expertise from beginner to the accomplished.
