Event Overview

You've been dying to learn macrame and now is your chance to create a beautiful, textured wall hanging alongside a professional artist at various Chicago locations!


We will begin with intros. Next, I will teach you several knot techniques and help you practice and perfect each one. Using those knot designs, you will create your very own macrame design. I will help guide you with designing, knotting and the overall look of your piece. Once your design is complete, you will trim and fray the ends. Everyone will complete their unique wall hanging during class so it is ready to hang the minute you get home! Your finished piece is generously sized at approximately 1 foot wide by 3-4 feet long. This workshop is perfect for anyone wanting a fun, creative experience where you leave with a completed craft. Grab a friend and join the group!


TICKET INCLUDES:




  • Enough macrame materials to completely create your wall hanging




  • Wooden dowel




  • Printed macrame knot guide to take home




  • Unlimited demonstrations and guidance throughout the class




  • Follow up email with Amy's favorite material resources




  • BYOB!

    Amy was a great instructor- very thorough, organized and easy to follow. We left with a great finished product, written instructions and resources, and some new skills. Had a great time, would absolutely recommend!

    Great, intimate class in a lovely boutique! Clear instruction and lots of room for creativity. I'd take the class again just to be able to make another wall hanging.
