The Language of Knots: A Modern Macrame Workshop | May 5

Knots have a fantastic and illustrious background. They can be practical: to keep objects secure or to create leverage. They can be informative: the Inca used an elaborate system of knotted threads (quipu) as a basis for writing. And knots can be decorative, as in many forms of textile arts and the ever popular friendship bracelet. 

In celebration of macrame, Australian fiber artist Bianca Barbaro will teach us some basic knots and guide us through the making of a decorative wall hanging.  

All materials will be provided, including cotton rope, wooden dowel, wooden beads plus instructions to take home.

No previous experience needed!

Workshop is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Makerville, in the mountains just south of Palm Desert, all but inside the San Bernardino National Forest.

PLEASE READ THE DISCLAIMER HERE.  No refunds will be honored within 24 hours of the beginning of the workshop
