If you’re finding yourself amassing new plants at a rate such that your apartment now doubles as the neighborhood botanical garden, then you know that making room for your flourishing flora collection can be...a problem. Enter: MACRAME! This classic, versatile form of fiber art allows you to create magical plant hangers that make excellent use of your vertical space while beautifully showing off each of your beloved green pals! In this online class, learn the many foundational knots used in macrame (square knot, gathering knot, spiral, and more...) as you create your own macrame plant hanger. You will learn to use a decorative, 3" wooden ring as the support, a handful of wooden beads for embellishment, and even Rit Dye to give your cotton cord a cool visual effect! Each student will work on one mid-sized plant hanger, measuring approximately 36" in height, and large enough to hold a 4-6" plant.
