Beginner’s Macrame Workshop
Make a Wall Hanging
Class size 8 – 10 people
3 hour class
Venue Gasworks Arts Park – Craft Room
I discovered macrame as a teenager and believe me that was a long time ago. The renewed interest in this art form means there is more to just making pot plant holders. They are now a unique wall art that you can create.
Make your own wall hanging with the traditional art of macramé. This class is for beginners and we will cover the basic knots.
Each piece can be quite individual so there is no pattern to follow. This will be your original work, but we’ll be there to instruct and guide you. Who knew that tying knots could be so peaceful and therapeutic.
Once you know the basic skills, there are many options to expand your knot repertoire.
We’ll be using cotton fibres and when available natural timber (from our property in South Gisborne) rather than dowels.
What you will get:
Learn a new skill and use them to create your own wall art using macramé
3 hour Hands on workshop
Notes with knot tying details
A unique wall art piece that will adorn your home
Parking is available on Richardson St.

We love soy candles and we love to teach the art of candle making, but this is not like other classes. We teach in a way that is simple to follow, without complicating the process with temperature concerns and without fuss.
That's not to say we don't worry about it, but there are simple methods that we can teach you that allows you to have your wax at the right temperature for melting, mixing and pouring. Everyone should have the opportunity to make these lovely candles. Why not join us?
Our classes are hands-on, so you get the experience in handling the wax. Yes, you will make mistakes at the start, but it's all about the learning. You will quickly become proficient using our method and will be making beautiful candles very quickly.
We will supply you with templates for wick sizing, fragrance blending charts, colour blending charts, lists of recommended suppliers and even a copy of our candle making workbook. And if you have queries after the class, we are more than happy to help.
See you soon.
