Can’t decide if you’re more excited about macrame or weaving? Why not do both?!
Little Feral’s fiber artist, Kaysie Condron will share her tips for spicing up a macrame wall hanging with weaving, wrapping, and fringing. Students with and without macrame experience are welcome to come work together and inspire each other to create original designs!
Each will leave with their own woven macrame wall hanging. All supplies are included, but students are welcome to bring items or yarn from home that they’d like to incorporate.
Kaysie Condron is a do-er, a maker, and an innovator. Born in Chicago and living in Portland, she’s visiting Australia to share her enthusiasm for fiber art. Her love of rich textures and desire to constantly create led to her to teach herself macrame in 2013, after 5 years of illustrating and bar-managing.
Her life thus far has been a mashup of many trials and many errors in a wide variety of art forms, and she’s found that the best method remains to unleash her medium (and with it, her creativity), while exploring a deeply meditative process. The result is wild and freeform fiber art, both for wear and for display. See examples at www.little-feral.com
Kaysie is passionate about connecting makers to the larger community through events, including pop-up sales and traveling workshops, in both macrame and cocktail creation. She is excited to continue to share her skills and resources with those around her and encourage others to express themselves.
This workshop taught me a primary macramé knot that can be applied in different directions, and some weaving basics that I can take home and build on. Materials were all supplied and the instructor was very friendly. I think there's room to learn more techniques in the class than were taught.
Really enjoyed the class. Met new people and learnt a basic knot and the different ways to use it. Great for beginners!
Thanks for a great night. As I already am a macrame artist selling my wares on Villa Sapi via instagram, I went to the workshop to gain knowledge and tips on how to run my own workshops. Little Feral was relaxed and gave a wonderful workshop with laughs in a casual atmosphere. I met some beautiful humans who have now become my friends. I live nearly 3 hours from the city and it was well worth the effort to travel to the workshop. I will definitely be attending more classes in the future. Cheers, Kelly xo
