We’re delighted to welcome back Stephanie Fradette, the fibre artist
behind the brand Le Petit Moose [https://www.lepetitmoose.com/], for
an afternoon of macramé. Working with bold colours inspired by the
ever-changing landscapes from her world travels, Stephanie creates
woven, knotted and tufted contemporary wall hangings full of rich
Working with a selection of fibres in a range of colours, Stephanie
will guide you through the steps to create your own plant
hanger using macramé. An ancient craft that can be traced back
hundreds of years, macramé enjoyed a resurgence in the 1970’s, only
to fall back out of popularity in the 80’s. Join Stephanie as she
brings the craft bang up to date, combining age old knots and
colourful materials to create a contemporary plant hanger that can be
used to display plants indoors or out.
We’ll be using twines and jute made by local business Nutscene
[https://nutscene.com/]. Originally created in Dundee in 1922, the
company still uses the same machinery to make their range of products
which includes twines, jute and raffia.
Once the workshop is complete, take your macramé hanger home and use
it to show off your favourite plant. You'll also be able to apply your
new found skills to try other projects so you can continue to decorate
your home using this historical knotting technique.
