Your granny has a knot, and you know how to tie it. You are also accomplished in tying your shoes. You thus have at your command three of the vital knots in macramé! Join this class to build on these skills to create your own unique masterpiece. This isn’t the craft box form of macramé, but an art form with ancient roots that is emotionally satisfying to do and lovely to look at. Added bonuses: it is inexpensive and you can do it anywhere, anytime, without making a mess! Instruction will be individualized with hands-on attention. Beginners will learn the fundamentals and get started on a project they can work on at home. If you have been knotting for some time, come share your knowledge and trade notes, so we can inspire one another and enhance all of our skills. A retired archeologist, Stephen Harmon has been knotting for over 60 years and he loves to teach it to others. He will provide all the materials you need for class.
