Course: Macrame for beginners

  • Kutomo Craft Studio Malagankatu 5 Helsinki 00220 Finland (map)

Macrame for beginners

During the course we will learn three basic knots. First we will practise making the knots one by one and then we will make a mini-sized macrame project.

If you already know some macrame, this course is a good opportunity to brush up on your skills. However, we will concentrate on the basic knots due to time limitations.

During the evening there is also a possibility to buy macrame materials, so you can put your newly-learned skills to use as soon as you get home!
