Macramé Leaf/Feather Wall Hanging | LVL 1 - Beginner friendly
Instructor: Jacquelyn Miccolis | Included: 2 hrs of instruction & supplies

During this workshop we will dive into the beautiful world of Macramé! Macramé is a form of textile produced using knotting (rather than weaving or knitting) techniques.


Jacquelyn will guide you through the steps to making your own wall hanging, with two bohemian style leaves/feathers. Participants will be guided through the steps with both verbal instruction, as well as an information sheet, acting as a visual aid, during this zero contact workshop.

This is an excellent class for beginners, who have little to no experience making macramé. No previous experience needed, just the willingness to learn! Join us for a friendly and relaxing evening of crafting for adults in downtown Halifax.
