Take a trip back through the 70’s in the Mystery Machine as you learn how to transform rope and twine into magical wall art goodness! You will learn the art of macrame, mastering foundational knots including the double half hitch, the square knot, alternating square knot, and half square knot. You will complete a fancy, mid-sized wall hanging from heavy cotton rope and a brass hanging rod OR foraged stick (size of wall hanging will be approximately 12" width X 20" height). Make all the OG boho peeps around the houseboat docks jelly by embellishing your funky macrame art with our selection of natural goodies, beads, and more! You will leave with one finished macrame wall hanging, an instructional handout, and the ability to keep knotting at home so you can complete additional macrame projects!
