HSFNworkshop-1117-0087.jpg

In the amount of time it takes you to Netflix through an episode and a half of Game of Thrones, you can learn to make a hanging home for your favorite plants. 

In this 90-minute macramé workshop, I will provide everything you need—100-percent cotton cord, natural wood beads, an instruction booklet I wrote and photographed just for you, and even enough snacks to fuel you and your creativity—to create a handmade macramé hanging planter, the most handy-dandy of the macramé sculptures.  

We will cover basic macramé terms and techniques, including how to customize your hanger for any plant or planter, how to decorate your hanger with knots and fringe, and the best way to hang your final piece. You and your new macra-pals will leave class with everything you need to know to create at least 88 more macramé hanging planters, if not more. 

But certainly not less. Because you're about to catch the macramé bug, my friends. Because of this, I will have additional hanging-planter kits, which include cord, beads, hanger, and an instruction booklet, available for purchase during class, plus extras of all the raw materials we use in class. 

"A very super spectacular time!" — said Ruby M. about the House Sparrow Fine Nesting macramé hanging planter workshop

"I had a wonderful time and learned so much!!" — said Sarah S., who also has very nice things to say about the House Sparrow Fine Nesting macramé hanging planter workshop 

Pro tip: Wear comfortable shoes! Note that many macramé students find these projects easier when we stand to work, so that's our default MO. If you would prefer to be seated during class, just let me know when you sign up and I will be happy to accommodate you.
