Macramé is the relaxing art of tying knots to create decorative items, with its roots in the Middle East.
In this workshop, you will create your own beautiful full-sized Fringed Macramé Hoop and then use Florette's fresh and dried greenery to create a seasonal wreath!
We will learn the three basic knots of macramé, and you'll walk away with basic knowledge to use in all types of macramé projects.
Another great thing about this piece is that you can transition it to another season by adding different greenery or it will look great in 2021 without greenery too!
Topics covered in the workshop include:
- Simple knotting instructions and demonstrations, suitable for beginners or people with some macramé experience
- Tips for a professional finish
- Floral arrangement guidance from florists
No previous macramé experience is necessary, although this workshop also works for previous workshop attendees.
- Imported 12-inch (30 cm) gold hoop
- Imported Bobbiny 5mm string in natural or golden natural (with gold thread laced throughout): you will receive the full roll although we will not use all of it!
- Fresh long-lasting greenery like eucalyptus branches
- Other natural festive decorative items like preserved citrus slices, cinnamon sticks and other dried spices and pinecones
Since you will have quite a bit of macrame string leftover, I will include two free keychain toppers to make additional macrame projects!
Saturday, November 14th
1:00 pm to 4:30 pm
Florette Floral Studio is graciously hosting us for the workshop!
Shop 7, Miracle Residence
Arjan, Dubai (near Dubai Miracle Gardens)
435 AED for workshop, all materials and greenery and two free keychains!
Payment and Registration on the Turquoise Zbooni storefront here:
String will be pre-ordered according to your RSVP. For this reason, we request pre-payment at the time of registration, in order to secure your spot (although other arrangements can be discussed). The deadline to join this workshop is November 10th, so that there will be ample time for delivery of the selected string colors.
Health and Safety:
Due to social distancing guidelines, I'm limiting attendees to 8 people, so everyone can have their own clothing rack to work from. The pricing reflects this precaution and the high quality of our materials.
Each participant will have their own workspace with her own clothing rack to work from and your own tool set which will be sanitized directly prior to the workshop. You will be asked to wear a mask throughout the workshop, and your temperature will be taken upon arrival. Hand sanitizer and sanitizer wipes, as well as extra masks and gloves will be available too.
Ts & Cs:
Cancellations for the workshop will be tricky for this workshop, once I have placed the order for the macrame string. Before 7 days prior to the workshop, I can offer a refund for a portion of the workshop cost. After this time, I cannot provide a refund but will gladly honor a credit to use at a future workshop or to purchase a DIY Kit.
Thank you for understanding.
I look forward to seeing you in person soon!
