Family Macramé - Wall-Hangings 1F22
Create something beautiful, with family!

You'll learn how to use various knotting techniques, how to add beads, mix colors and choose types of ropes and cords that will allow you to design, create and experiment with your own style. By the end of the workshop, you'll create your own decorative macrame wall-hanging.
All levels welcome. Limit 6 students, children 9 & above.

*This workshop meets outside, in our Canopy Classroom. Please dress accordingly.
"I wanted to find an activity to do with my 9 year old child and it was nice to have a different way to spend time together. I’d happily take another family class!"

“I love bringing art to students because it provides a respite from purely academic work. It’s an opportunity for them to create something of their own, on their own terms, and decide for themselves what the outcome will be. Looking at a blank piece of paper or a block of wood and being able to spark a student’s imagination into what it could be and, even better, guiding them to the process of seeing that dream through, is wonderfully inspiring.”
