Macramé for beginners – Make&Take adults
MACRAMÉ is a fascinating (and slightly complex!) craft. Understanding and memorising all the different knots can be quite tricky as they rely on particular hand movements, so ideally you would need somebody to show you those movements. Nevertheless, even the most complex projects are combinations of simpler basic knots that you can practise making.
* Any thread you have available, in at least 2 or 3 different colours. Ideally lace making or embroidery thread, but even normal cotton or wool would do.
* A pair of scissors
* Something to secure your piece while working (e.g. a piece of sticky tape or a clipboard).
MAKE&TAKE ADULTS are creative workshop for adults, free and open to everybody. Every week there is a new activity and craft to explore. They are a great opportunity for people to practise creativity for the promotion of well-being: participants are invited to ‘play’ with materials without feeling the pressure of achieving something perfect. The sessions also offer the chance to socialise in a very friendly, supportive and relaxed atmosphere. Due to social distancing, the group is currently unable to meet, so we are offering simple tutorials for the weekly workshop, readjusting the original activity with materials and resources that people can easily find at home.
