Come and learn the intricate and ancient art of macrame aka tying knots! Macrame harks back to 13th century Arabian weavers and was huge in the 1970’s. Sailors also tied macrame bracelets on board the ship to give their sweethearts back home or wipe the sweat from their brows.
Macrame is a beautiful way to express your creative side and create a warm & textured item for your home as well as learn an ancient and practial skill.
Join Leonie from ‘Entwined Macrame’ and learn to tie the basic knots and make a gorgeous macrame pot plant hanger from cream cotton shipping rope. All materials are supplied and you take home the finished product. Leonie’s workshops have a very co-operative and open atmosphere so you are encouraged to express yourself and work at your own pace.
ABOUT LEONIE SIMPSON
I started doing macrame in 2013 after remembering how much I enjoyed it in primary school and feel inspired by the softness and warmth of natural fibres
such as rope. I find macrame very meditative and love creating gorgeous warm pieces to adorn people’s homes and give them a bohemian and
As a teacher I love creating a patient and supportive atmosphere to encourage people to express themselves.
When I’m knot doing or teaching macrame ..haha.. I love singing, playing guitar, sewing, reading, gardening, swimming in the ocean and watching 80’s films.
I teach workshops in various places around Brisbane and and also do custom orders.
My macrame pot plant holders are for sale at Mappins Nursery in West End.
