Macrame & Weaving Workshops


"Weaving, Knotting & Tying Your Creativity" - The Creative Way Workshops

Let's turn on our creativity, through circle weaving, macrame knotting and fabric tying. Choose your own project that matches your unique expression. It's time to play and create with our hands. This workshop will take you through the basics of circle weaving, macrame knotting and other tying techniques to create your own piece to take home. This workshop is aimed at teaching you a variety of methods in one session! All materials will be provided during the workshop, which will include recycled t-shirt yarn in a range of colours to choose from, along with hand-collected driftwood, hoops and more. There will also be sweet treats and herbal teas. This class will be small intimate sizes to ensure you get the most out of the session.

During each workshop, we will be hands on, using practical ways to be more creative and learning about creative mindfulness. This workshop is not for artists - it is aimed at anyone who wants more creativity in their life.

TESTIMONIAL: "It was a pleasure to spend this evening with this creative soul learning the art of Macrame. I hesitated to bring my girlfriend thinking it was a little outside the male comfort zone, I couldn't have been more wrong. Apparently the men get a kick out of tying knots too! So If your short on a partner (or cant coax them along) get a group of girls together, take a break from going on the drink and learn something new!" - Michael.
