I love to knot, I have been working with fibres since I was a kid, I can get lost in the art for hours! But I also love to socialise, work and meet new people... So I combined the two.
Why not do what I love and meet new people at the same time? and yes, chuck a wine or two in there also ;)

E Elia was a fantastic teacher, super friendly and fun and made creating the macrame so easy!
The venue was a beautiful space and so bright and open, perfect with such great weather. The margaritas were also delish!

Emilia was wonderful. So considerate. She prepared our class on a deck outdoors with large umbrella shading. Upon our arrival she brought out fresh fruit such as Berries, watermelon, strawberries and blue berries. She offered and bought us coffee. Wow.
What did we learn etc how to macrame , Emilia supplied the many metres of cord as well as 4 terra Cotta pots. This was for my bful partner’s bthday. So memorable for her,& it was nice for us to do as a couple. Something quite out of the box for me - very fun. It was great to have the one on one and such awesome patience and positive energy from Emilia. Thank you so much.

This was fantastic. Emilia was so lovely, patient, and overall just such a great inspiring teacher. The whole group enjoyed it and Emilia provided everything and even fed us yummy snacks. I would absolutely recommend everyone to have a go - we were all beginners and Emilia made it a fun day out and we all left with a gorgeous new macrame piece to take home. Thanks so much Emilia!

The class was fantastic!
Everything was provided, the teacher was awesome and such a cool chick, very relatable.
She provided snacks & drinks so great value for money.
The venue is very cool, heaps of character & lots to look at. Would be hard to get bored there.
We will definitely be recommending Emilia to friends and possibly even using her as a wedding planner/designer.
Thankyou Emilia & Thankyou class bento

This was a gift I enjoyed greatly from my gorgeous hubby for our anniversary! Emilia was very relaxed n friendly. The presentation of the class was welcoming n appropriate. I was looking forward to making a plant hanger as per website detail, however the class content was a decorative wall hanging instead. The venue was a little intimidating & noisy (next door), and toilets need attn. On the whole, it was a very pleasant afternoon tasting of the enjoyment that can be had with macrame. Thank you Emilia
