Description

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 practical skill.

Join Leonie from Entwined Macrame in this fun and interactive workshop learning two basic knots to create a set of four beautiful cream cotton rope bunting flags. You will also learn how to cut and tape rope and fray it to create a lovely bohemian look on the edges.

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

Vintage vibe!

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.
