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. MATERIAL NEEDED: * 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).

The Margaret Whitford Bequest is a collection of 47 contemporary prints and a sculpture acquired by Falmouth Art Gallery in 2012 through The Art Fund. In 2018/19 the gallery’s Citizen Curators staged the ‘Gut Reaction’ project to find out more about Margaret Whitford and her collection and explore how audiences responded to the artworks. Two of the group, Becki Brattin and Katie Bunnell, were keen to take this work further and were awarded an ‘Emerging Voices’ bursary by Cornwall Museum’s Partnership to enable them to continue their research. You can read about their project ‘Finding Margaret’ here: https://www.cornwallmuseumspartnership.org.uk/finding-margaret-emerging-voices/
