Macramé Wall Hanging OR Plant Hanger
Arts & DIY
Join us for a special chance to learn macramé while exploring the new IRL (In Real Life) storefront at Water Tower Place on Chicago's Magnificent Mile.
In this experience, I will lead you through several macrame knots so you will confidently and comfortably create your very own small wall hanging or plant hanger. The finished piece is approximately 1/2' wide x 3' long. This hands-on workshop is perfect for beginners or advanced students too. Grab a friend or three and join us!
IRL is a living lab that delivers an immersive experience with digital brands working to rebuild the human connection between brands and consumers in today’s digital age. General Growth Properties and The Lionesque Group have partnered with Dabble's entrepreneurs, makers and creators that don't have their own storefronts.
