Hi, I'm Caroline and I design, create and share my love for the popular 70's fibre art, macrame.

I started my business over 5 years ago now, it is my full time job I literally live and breath macrame. Pretty Kooky Macrame designs are modern with a unique twist on this soothing craft. I have been teaching and running regular workshops for years now and I absolutely love it, there is no better feeling than students going home with such pride in the finished pieces.

We absolutely enjoyed the beginners macrame class with Caroline! She was very patient with a great sense of humour and got us to the finish knot with much enthusiasm and encouragement. A lovely session to do with family or friends and learn something new. I highly recommend it. Thanks Caroline.

I had a fantastic time creating my wall hanging with extra help from Caroline. I have an acquired brain injury and needed a lot more help than what I thought I would need . She was so very patient with me and I have come home with a beautiful macrame masterpiece. I would definitely recommend pretty kooky to anyone wanting to do macrame. Thank you Caroline for the extra time I needed. You are the best teacher.

Caroline was very welcoming to her home studio. I really enjoyed the class, very well laid out and easy to understand. Very relaxed and casual, and I was very happy with My final wall hanging. Even though we went over time it was no trouble. Thanks Class Bento and Caroline!

I had a ball of a time, making my very own wall hanging artwork and learning some awesome new skills along the way so that I can continue creating new projects. The teacher was so lovely, very patient and friendly and had wealth of knowledge to share. She had a gorgeous inspirational home and was so hospitable, providing drinks and snacks. Highly recommend this class

Enjoyable few hours with Caroline, who was easy going, she also provided yummy cheese, dip and fruit platter oh not to forget wine too! Venue was like stepping back into a 70's eclectic home filled with stunning macrame wall hangings and beautiful hanging plants (of course in macrame holders!) would definitely recommend this course

What a great time learning macrame! Small class sizes mean lots of one to one help. The class was relaxed and fun. It was brilliant and deeply rewarding to walk away with a completed wall hanging. Thanks
