Macrame Plant Hangers Workshop



3 hours 12 to 40 label $80


Macrame is back. Channel some serious retro vibes with this macramé plant hanger workshop. Believed to have originated with Arabic weavers in the 13th century, this knotting technique became popular with sailors and royalty in the 1800s and had a huge resurgence in the 1970s, along with disco and jellified foods. And it’s back in vogue.

In this class, we’ll cover a range of traditional knots, and you can pick and choose your favourites to create your very own macramé plant hanger. These can be hung on the wall or from a hook on the ceiling. We’ll use locally-spun 100% cotton rope and wooden dowel. Each student will receive an indoor plant in a cute pot to place in their macramé hanger. Twist, tangle and braid your way through a relaxing session, and come away with an intricate and functional piece of art.

Please note: This class requires at least 5 students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:


What you'll get
  • Locally spun 100% cotton rope

  • Wooden dowel

  • Indoor plant in a cute pot

What to bring

Feel free to bring along a special piece of driftwood or a branch that takes your fancy to use as the base for the hanger instead of dowel

Suitable for

This class is ideal for a birthday, hens party, team building activity, corporate event, bucks party or Christmas party.

After graduating from Textile Design and Development at RMIT, where she majored in weave and printmaking, Roz sought to distance herself from the questionable ethics of fast fashion and textile waste. Using sustainable methods and ethically-sourced materials, she produced an austere range of high-quality garments under the brand Be Kind Textiles. Driven by an unquenchable passion, Roz spent the following years delving into every craft within her reach. She now proffers her results and lifelong love of art and textiles with anyone who’s willing.

Loved this class and Roz was a star teacher! I really enjoyed learning such a beautiful art for the first time. It was really nice to break the ice at the beginning and have everyone introduce themselves. The location was really convenient, the price of the workshop was good based on the materials supplied and the inclusion of the plant. Highly recommend the workshop and congratulate Roz on her dedication and skill :)

Roz was a brilliant teacher: patient and kind. She gave individual instruction to match each student's evolving designs. The product we each made in a short space of time was incredible. I felt a tremendous sense of achievement after learning so many knots in an evening and feel that I can modify these to make new designs. I am thrilled to have created Celtic knots. The venue is a very cool warehouse with good parking and PT nearby.
