The macrame trend you will only find in the chicest of interiors
How to make your own macrame plant hangers
Macrame, the knot tying craft enjoyed by many in the 1970’s has recently made a comeback into some of the chicest homes. Macrame is produced using knotting techniques to create gorgeous intricate textiles – like plant hangers.
We love macrame because it is homemade and natural, there is something quite calming about having a few homemade textiles in your home. As well as evoking a hippy earthy kind of vibe they are great if you are short on space – you can suspend a gorgeous plant mid-air saving your window sills from getting too cluttered.
You can hang pretty much any type of plant from a macrame plant holder to add instant boho-chic to your home - we love using spider plants! The gorgeous light green colour and long ribbon leaves work perfectly in this type of plant holder – plus they are super easy to care for.
Want a completely bespoke and handmade macrame plant hanger to spruce up your home? Then why not learn how to make your own? It is an easy craft to learn and makes for quite a therapeutic exercise. The Green Rooms Market in Peckham offers two-hour macramé workshops. You will be taken through each step – from choosing your macrame cord, learning the larks head, spiral and square knot to finishing the trimming. You will get to take home the gorgeous handmade textile that you have made yourself!
The next workshop will be held on the Saturday 28th July at the Green Room Market at Peckham Springs. Check out other days here.
Tickets £35 per person (2 hour workshop). All materials and equipment will be included.
