Event Overview

You've been dying to learn macrame and now is your chance to create a beautiful, textured plant hanging alongside a professional artist in her home art studio!


We will begin with intros and wine. 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 plant hanging design. You'll even have the option to add colorful beads to your piece. 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 3 feet long. This workshop is perfect for anyone wanting a fun, creative experience in a charming Chicago gem. Grab a friend and join the group!


TICKET INCLUDES:



  • Enough macrame materials to completely create your wall hanging

  • Choice of gold or silver ring

  • Printed macrame knot guide to take home

  • Unlimited demonstrations and guidance throughout the class

  • Optional colorful beads to enhance your design

  • Complementary wine selection

  • Follow up email with Amy's favorite material resources


Workshop tickets are nonrefundable. If necessary, you can transfer your ticket into someone else's name.

    This was a GREAT class! I have taken several classes through Dabble and this was one of the best. Amy was a great teacher and the environment she creates in her studio is lovely. She thoroughly explained each step and made sure to give individual attention to every student. It was a great balance of learning and fun! I'm excited to display the plant hanging I made and can't wait to try out additional macrame projects in the future.

    Amy was a great instructor. She took the time to teach us the knots, let us practice, and came around to help individually. I went home with something I can’t wait to use in my home!

    Absolutely LOVED this class. Amy was a wonderful teacher, super patient, and just really fun to learn from. My friend and I hit unusually heavy traffic and were unfortunately 30 minutes late. Amy did a great job of bringing us up to speed quickly while still engaging our other classmates. I was surprised how easy macrame is- just like making a big friendship bracelet! Was excited to learn this skill and can't wait to try it again.

    I had such a great time in this class! It's nice to do something new/creative after work with some lady friends or to go and make NEW ones! My friend and I planned to go to this class together, we BYOB'd and left with a great piece and a new skill! Amy was a delightful teacher, her instructions were simple, she helped when we were struggling and was prepared with set up, beads, and even a light snack/water! I highly recommend this class!

    It was a really fun class. Amy is an amazing teacher and I learned a ton. I've since been making my own macrame creations at home!
