Hi, my name is Kristyn. I am a fibre artist based in the Blue Mountains of NSW and I work with the crafts of macrame, crochet and weaving.

I started crafting after my second child was born and quickly became addicted. What started as a therapeutic hobby has now turned into a small business and I am absolutely loving being a part of the creative community in the Blue Mountains.

I have a strong focus on using recycled or second-hand materials and the majority of my materials are purchased second hand. I love upcycling old things and giving them new life as beautiful home decor items!

I have been teaching macrame workshops for the past few years and I absolutely it.

DIY Feather Macrame Wall Hanging



I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. So easy to book a date and choose colours online. Kristyn sent the kit in plenty of time, and confirmed I'd received it. All these things made me feel valued as a customer. The class via zoom was so pleasant and I had a great close up view, was able to ask Kristyn to repeat something where I wasn't sure. She is so calm and patient sharing tips and ideas.  + more

DIY Feather Macrame Wall Hanging



Something that looks so difficult was made easy in step by step approach. I hugely appreciated that the class was still run given no other bookings, which I understand is not always possible. I am happy with the result of what I created - but did today to learn the skills so I can create a much bigger project in the coming months.

Kristyn was very organised and explained the steps really well. She also gave lots of tips about the project we were working on and other macrame related projects. Excellent morning.

This class is fun and Kristyn explains everything well and is only too happy to go back over anything if needed. Highly recommended if you want to learn a new mindfulness pastime.

Kristyn does a very relaxed and friendly class. She demonstrates well and is happy to repeat things if you didn’t really catch on. The class is easy to do in your own home and worked well over zoom. Would recommend for sure.

DIY Macrame Lantern



This was a great class, small group allowed us to focus and chat while working. Teacher was informative and easy to ask questions. Once we finished our class, I made another with confidence I’d gained!

Great class. I am so happy with my finished piece. It was a little difficult for me to get the knack at first but Kristyn was patient and really helpful.

Enjoyed the class! Kristen is a great and patient teacher. I had a few technical issues and my connection dropped out a few times, setting me behind during the session. Yet to finish my project. Kristen has provided information for me to finish
