My adult daughter and I attended one of Ness' macrame crystal necklace making workshops and it was very enjoyable. Excellent range of crystals to choose from. We did run out of time as we were quite slow, but Ness was super helpful and patient with us both. Lovely lady. Looking forward to using her instructions to complete our necklaces.

Video tutorial was easy enough to follow, got a bit confused towards the end but finished the bag and am very happy with it :)
Ness was very good with communication and made sure that I was able to complete my project with the kit supplied
All cords were separated well and clearly labelled, so I wouldn’t get anything mixed up. Can’t wait to get my 2nd one done!

I went to a rag rug workshop for the first time and found that Ness (the teacher) explained everything really well making learning how to make the rug easy. I loved the choice of materials supplied. For a beginner like me this was the best class to start off. I would certainly attend another workshop run by Ness.

This was a great class! My sister, mum and I did this together and we all walked away feeling really accomplished and with an awesome macrame hanging pot!

Would definitely do another class with Ness in the future :)

Ada Eckersley Oct 2023


Ness is a great teacher. Patient and very instructive. We were provided with a great selection of materials and we had all the tools necessary to get started in our rag rug class. The Venue was good, bit noisy with other activities going on within the building. Highly recommend

The teacher was great. She explained the knots well and demonstrated them to us. She came round and made sure we were doing it right and waited until we were ready before proceeding with the next step so none of us were left behind.

Macrame Wall Hanging Class review by Alexandra Wiggins - Brisbane

Trudy Frainey Mar 2023


There was not enough time to finish the item. Needed to be advertised as an intermediate class or made simpler so I'm could be completed in the time. Venue was very hot. We were told that nibbles would be provided. We had to ask for this and we were handed a single pretzel and cheese snack box. The class could have been so much better if these things were addressed

The teacher was knowledgeable and helpful. Sometimes it was hard to hear because of fans.

Allison Crawford Mar 2023


This class was really great. Ness is a wonderful teacher, calm and kind and and so talented. Seeing her completed rugs was inspirational and has given me lots of motivation to keep going. It's also so therapeutic and relaxing, rag rug making is now my absolute favourite thing to do ☺️. The venue at BagEnd Studios was gorgeous (amazing art and crafts for sale) and the materials Ness provided were great, especially the nifty tool from the USA! The whole experience was great value for money and we'll be back for more soon. Thanks Ness

Karen Barrett Mar 2023


Clear explanation. Friendly helpful teacher. Plenty of room. Follow up assistance is readily available. Great!

Alicia Bulmer Mar 2023


LOVED IT Absolutely loved today's class! NESS was fantastic at explaining exactly what to expect & how to correct if we find ourselves out of shape. The intimate class size was great to help NESS get around the room and individually help us all get started.

Hi Ness
It was good value for money. Tutorial was presented in the air at first which was daunting to follow. As was the previous macramé class.

However, it was then described flat on the table. And to another left handed person. Then I could at last follow it more easily as a I am also left handed.

From my experience- a suggestion is not to describe just in the air as it can be confusing - for either hand users.

I’m glad there was just one simple knot. I liked the repetitious manner of making the rug. It’s very appealing to me to repurpose materials and matches my ethics.

It makes it affordable as well and something I can continue within my budget - unlike macramé materials.

Importantly- there was time to ask questions and I felt confident working on my rag rug.

I will be recommending this workshop to my friends.

Thank you
Catherine

Jennifer Kipfer Jan 2023


Interesting experience. A bit messy in terms of format but I learned a new technique.

Nicole Dec 2022


This was a great morning lots of fun
The teacher was very patient and helpful.
Would definitely recommend

Tammie Dec 2022


I really enjoyed the workshop. The set up allowed my group to socialise but still engage in the class. The facilitator was really nice, clearly explained the steps, was patient and individualised instructions where needed. Having printed instructions hanging on the stand also meant that I could have a visual guide as well as the facilitator guiding me. I really enjoyed this class and would definitely consider taking more classes in future. I love my plant hanger.

Jason Sydenham Dec 2022


What an excellent way to spend the afternoon. Our teacher Ness was very clear in her instructions and patient too as we all worked at different speeds. A nice sized group, I think 8 people, and it just flowed nicely. Having never done macrame before I found the Ness easy to follow and was very impressed by my finished product. Certainly feeling inspired. Have even bought my first pattern to try on my own. Would highly recommend this class. Thanks Ness.

Catherine Carson Nov 2022

The class materials were prepared ready for the class.
Unfortunately, It was difficult to follow her explanation and I struggled with how the square knot was described. It’s a half hitch (from my experience in Guides) one way and back again I realised later that night.
I felt that being left handed was a disadvantage - the twine unravelled and it was frustrating to work with the rope.
The facilitator was patient and managed the group well. She responded to my my questions promptly, but I struggled. I don’t know whether I took it in.

I’d like to do one again, but I felt overwhelmed by the information being given while I was still constructing the hanger.

I guess it was a good start. The plant hanger managed to survive my attentions. I’d like to continue at home, if possible. Information would be welcomed.

Ness is a natural teacher. She is patient and clearly described and demonstrated what we needed to do. She kept up with us all working at different paces and offered heaps of tips for the future. A lovely, relaxed class. The end result? A very nice macrame pot plant hanger! In only 2 hours! I would so recommend this class to others. A great way to spend time with a friend and great value for money.

I absolutely loved this workshop with Ness. All the materials were provided and the colours to choose from were gorgeous which made deciding on a colour scheme the hard part. Creating the feather hanger was a relaxing and simple process that was really easy to do and if I ever got stuck Ness was right there ready to guide me through. I would highly recommend Ness and look forward to her next macrame class.

Ness was patient and encouraging, made learning easier! Love how you can create a ‘practical and eye catching work of art’ out of recycled materials. I think rag rug making can be addictive!

We spent the afternoon trying to understand what to do but with a great teacher in a comfortable room we were able to make our own pieces in our own way, picking our own crystals and chord and extra pieces to make our necklaces to suit us. We had afternoon tea and comfortable surroundings and lots and lots of help to get us to step by step make our necklace to suit our selves. definitely coming back with friends to do again

Sandy Ross Oct 2022


The teacher was very generous with her time and teaching. The hanger was simple so we all finished in good time. We did have extra time so perhaps she could have demonstrated one or two other knots. She did talk about some other ideas but we had time to learn something new. Still, I'd recommend it to others, it was a nice afternoon.

Great class, but can be very addictive once you start. The instruction was great and great colour in the materials. Nice small group so everyone was able to receive individual attention.

Venue was easy to park at.
Ness was friendly and knowledgeable.
Loved the packs she had done up for students to pick their colours

Had a fun morning with Ness and a bunch of friendly lady's learning the basics of how to make rag rugs. Ness is a great teacher who took the time to demonstrate and help everyone individually, when needed.
We got to choose our material colours to suit our own tastes and decor from a good selection of material packs which included the tool needed to make the rug, as well as tea, coffee and some sweet treats to enjoy during the morning.
It was a great experience and definitely good value for money.

Instructor friendly and able to give personal 1:1 time with each student as only 6 in the class. Venue easy to find and comfortable with plenty of room.
It took a little while to understand the technique needed to make rag rugs but we had all mastered the skill and had a small rug and extra fabric to take home.

Ness was friendly and patient. She walked us through the process and also gave one on one support. All materials were provided and we were able to keep. She provided a background to the origins of Rag Rug making and also her personal experience. She also gave us tips and places to source materials. The venue was easy to find and clean. A positive was the aircon on a hot humid afternoon. The afternoon tea and coffee was outstanding. I was very happy and will be recommending to my friends.

This was a lovely environment and a brilliant way for me to catch up with my friend. The time allowed for this class was perfect for the teacher to move between all participants and help fix issues when needed. The morning tea provided was tasty and my brain really needed the extra energy for so much concentration. The class participants were well spread out allowing big arm movements as well as being covid conscious.

Nicole Yeatman Feb 2022


She was a good teacher and very patient. I was disappointed that we only had the option of natural colour. I think two to three colours would be better and let the customer choose which colour.

I was also disappointed that masks were required. According to the Qld Government website if you are 1.5m away you do not need to wear a mask.

Also the toilet and basin were in desperate need of a clean. This disappointed me immensely.

Teacher's response

Sorry you were disappointed with so many aspects of the workshop however I did inform you you that colour options weren’t available at this point in time when you enquired prior to the workshop and a text message was sent out the day before with the venue requirements for covid safe procedures and mask wearing which you had agreed to prior. Bathroom is always clean, just building is very old with stains in sink etc from water pipes.
