Intro to MacraWeaving
Saturday, July 6th from 1-4
'Macraweaving' is a technique that combines the best of macramé and the best of weaving, resulting in a unique and beautiful style of fibre art. In this class you will learn a variety of weaving techniques and knots to create your own 6.5 × 13 inch macraweave wall hanging (note exact length will vary, depending on creative choices).There is no set pattern to follow for this class. Instead, you will build upon the skills taught by local fibre artist Laura Dyer (Knot Your Girl) to create a piece that is entirely your own.
The first half of the class will focus on learning knots and creating the macramé sections of your work. In the second half, you will focus on incorporating weaving techniques into the wall hanging. Through these processes, you will learn some of the foundational skills needed to start exploring the wonderful worlds of macramé and weaving on your own!
(All materials are included in the class fee. Please note that this class involves working while standing for most of the creating process. If this is an issue for you please chat with Knot Your Girl and Knit Stitch Sew so we can find a more accessible and comfortable solution for you.)
