Get involved in the macramé revival with local textile artist, Clare Locker.

This versatile and inexpensive craft requires few tools besides a pair of scissors, and once you’ve mastered the basics you’ll soon be flying, creating beautiful pieces for your home.

In this 2 hour workshop, you will learn a range of macramé knots and be guided to use them to create a unique wall hanging. All tools and materials are provided, including 5mm natural macramé rope, and your choice of copper pipe or wooden dowel, from which to string your hanging.

The workshop is suitable for beginners, no previous experience is necessary.

This event is part of Manchester Folk Festival – an urban folk festival. It takes place over 18-21 October 2018, in an around HOME and the city centre. Over the autumn weekend, they present an exhilarating range of events, with the spotlight on English folk.
