APRIL 31- MAY 2
INSTRUCTOR: Whitney Chin
Have you been interested in learning macrame crafts? Are you currently hoarding a ton of old t-shirts, plastic grocery bags, old jeans? Join us in May to explore ways of re-imagining the old, and turning it into stunning new home decor. Macrame is a form of textile making dealing with knotting rather than weaving or knitting. Students will learn to deconstruct t-shirts and other materials into a continuous ball of yarn, study basic macrame techniques and finally, discover ways to tie it into something new! Participants will walk away with unique and original hanging floral accessories (just in time for mother’s day!), inspired by 1970’s macrame decor. Ideas of creative recycling, sustainability and integrity of certain materials will be explored. Jersey material will be available to students at a small cost.
