Following the sold out embroidery Craft Revival Café we are excited to launch the second in our Craft Revival classes focusing on macramé.

Macramé is a form of textile produced using knotting techniques and the team at Rotorua Museum is looking forward to introducing this vintage craft to new generations.

Located at Te Rūnanga Tea house, you can enjoy a glass of wine and nibbles as you learn a funky twist on macramé on Tuesday 13 March 2018 at 5.30pm.

With guidance from experienced macramé expert, Jo from The Craft Lab, you will learn how to make a hanging pot holder while you chat to like-minded crafters.

Check out a couple of vintage macramé examples from the Rotorua Museum collection.

Tickets are $15 and include a drink (wine or orange juice), light nibbles, all equipment (the pot is not included) to complete the craft and crafts instructions. Spaces are limited and must be booked in advance via Eventfinda.

Macramé comes from a 13th-century Arabic weavers' word migramah meaning ‘fringe’ which refers to the decorative fringes on camels and horses. Though the craze for macramé faded, it regained popularity during the 1970s as a means to make wall hangings, articles of clothing, bedspreads, small jean shorts, tablecloths, draperies, plant hangers and other furnishings.

Other dates in the series:
*Tuesday 10 April 2018, 5.30pm - Embellished Darning
