This workshop forms part of our Online Public Programme.
Join Katie Mitchell from By-Me, on a zoom workshop, to learn a new craft as part of the ‘Beautiful & Useful Craft Fair 2020‘. Katie will be in the beautiful surroundings of the Garden Museum ready to teach you how to make a macramé plant hanger with the Fair Curator Natasha Goodfellow and the Museum’s Public Programme Manager Emma Stones. You will be taken through each step, from start to finish, including learning the wrapped, spiral and square knot, trimming the hanger and at the end you will have made yourself a ‘Beautiful & Useful’ Macramé Plant Hanger ready to go and test out with your own pot and plant!
Along with the ticket, you will need to purchase a DIY Macrame Kit for £14.99 from By-Me.London. There are four colour choices, Mustard, Natural, Eucalyptus Green & Charcoal. Kits will be available to buy until the 2nd December to allow for postage time.
Along the way Katie will share a variety of macramé tips and techniques during this 2 hour session. Suitable for beginners and those new to macramé.
You will need:
– a ruler/tape measure
– somewhere to hang your hanger. This just makes it easier to handle when making the knots. Suggestions are: off a clothes rail/clothes horse/airer/hook on the back of a door/back of a chair. Preferably at chest level if possible.
– an S hook (optional)
– a pot and a plant to try out your new creation!
Katie studied textile design at university and then went on to work for 10 years as a visual merchandiser for several high street interior and fashion brands. Since having her own children, she decided the time was right to go back to my textile roots. By-Me began when Katie joined a mums' craft group after moving to South East London. There, she met some inspirational mothers who had set up amazing creative businesses from home and this gave her the confidence to strike out on her own.
