The primary knots of macramé are the square (or reef knot) and forms of "hitching": various combinations of half hitches. It was long crafted by sailors, especially in elaborate or ornamental knotting forms, to cover anything from knife handles to bottles to parts of ships.
2020 saw Macramé become popular once more and now the high streets are full of trendy knotted goods. I have to admit they are all rather lovely, but I often find myself thinking I'm sure I could make one of those myself ... problem is I don't know how. If you're thinking the same, or just find yourself wanting to try out a new craft why not sign up to Westwood 2015's Mastering the Art of Macramé course.
The course takes place over 3 weeks and is just £6. More info on the poster. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book.
