Wow! This class was amazing! Maggie May is so supportive and positive. She gently pushed us to extend ourselves as we learned advanced macrame techniques. I came away with a work of art I hadn't even imagined I was ready to create. Even my critical daughters are impressed and have put in orders for me to make them macrame wall hangings.A fabulous experience and an instagram worthy wall hanging! I highly recommend this class.

I enjoyed every single minute of this class! Maggie is a fantastic teacher. She is very patient and observant, and gave all of us the attention that we needed to each complete a beautiful and unique wall hanging. I took away some very useful techniques, the class was well worth the price and I would urge others to have a go! Think Thornbury is a beautiful store and the upstairs classroom is such a gorgeous place to spend an afternoon making. I'm looking forward to my next visit very soon xx
