CRAFT SOCIAL // Mama Social X Northern Tangles // An Introduction to Macrame

Join us at the serene setting of The Chimney House at Kelham Island on June 28th for our second craft social.
Jo Musgrave of ‘Northern Tangles’ will be leading the evening, providing an introduction to macramé, teaching the basic techniques required to produce your very own piece of art. Macrame, the ancient art of decorative knotting, originated in the 13th century when Arabic weavers knotted excess thread into decorative fringes. Macrame can be used to make anything from a delicate friendship bracelet all the way up to huge intricate wall hangings.
Jo specialises in spectacular plant hangers made in vibrant colour ways as well as the more traditional neutral shades. She sells her pieces across the city in stores including the fabulous florist ‘Moss and Clover’ in Netheredge as well as through her online Folksy store; ‘Northern Tangles’.
We’ll be knotting the night away incorporating rope with driftwood which has been collected from the North Yorkshire coast (!) by Jo herself to create small but stunning wall hangings.
