On Tuesday 28th The Chimney House played host to another Craft Social for Mama Social. Thanks to everyone who came, especially Jo Musgrave of ‘Northern Tangles’ who lead us in an introduction to macramé, the ancient art of decorative knotting.
Jo’s beautiful wall hangings and plant hangers are sold across the city, and she was there to teach us her craft!
We started with a glass of fizz and learning the basic knots we needed to produce our wall hangings after we’d (semi) mastered the knots we set to work with our own piece of Staithes’ driftwood and our chosen colour of rope.
The results we’re stunning, and we all left with beautiful, intricate wall hangings and a desire to create more with our new found skill!
Keep an eye on our social media for our upcoming events ….
