Monika’s passion lies in house plants and wall hangings.. When Monika is not weaving, she’s knotting rope and coming up with new ways of displaying her plant collection- which is constantly growing!
You can be sure she’ll guide you through designing and creating your own unique stand out plant hanger. You’ll be taught basic macrame knots and guided through the hanger making process. You’ll leave the class with loads of inspiration and your very own plant hanger! This is a beginners class and no prior knowledge is required.

Monika, one half of the Mo & Mum duo, is a Polish born Berliner, textile artist and designer who’s just moved to Melbourne. The idea for the handcrafting duet came to life when Monika and her Mum would help each other while exploring their creativity through textile art. Monika focussed on weaving and macrame which she’s loved from day one, while her Mum went for embroidery and knitting.
“Like an artist paints a painting, we weave a weaving”. With a passion for art and design, Monika found she could express her creativity through textiles and weaving. She started teaching ‘work shops’ in Berlin, just as the exciting city caught the weaving bug. Monika’s classes have been a big success, with the latest booking out in only two days!
While Monika is preparing to work on some large scale pieces, she’s looking forward to travel to various parts of Australia and spreading her love for colour and natural fibres through teaching. www.moandmum.com
