This April, Jade Paton from House of Grace will be hosting an introduction to the ancient art of macramé, which she fell in love with while visiting California. Macramé traces its roots to thirteenth-century Arabic weavers, and was a popular pastime for sailors who used their rope knotting skills for decorative and meditative purposes. Jade uses this technique in unconventional and creative ways, playing with scale, colour and unusual materials, to push the boundaries of the craft. She’s produced commissions for projects including fashion week, product launches, restaurants, events and window displays.
What can you expect?
A relaxed afternoon spent learning the basics of macramé knotting. The class will last 2–3 hours during which time you will create a plant hanger to take home.
