Ever been frustrated with the selection of pre-made cords you find at the craft or fabric store? It's actually really simple to make your own at home using simple tools and scraps of yarn from your stash! Making your own cord assures that you have something unique to use when you are creating home & party decor, gift wrap embellishment or jewelry.
I'll be teaching cord making techniques as well as tassel making skills that you can apply to projects such as decorative garlands or fashion forward tassel necklaces!
Yarn and other fibers will be provided but feel free to bring in something from your stash you want to use.
i'm teaching a macrame wall hanging workshop at makeshift society in san francisco on june 8th. pictured is just an example of what you will be able to make - i will be demonstrating several different knots (as well as as few variations) so that you can create youro won one-of-a-kind piece. all supplies are provided to create an approx. 12" x 36" wall hanging. you can use the techniques you learn in the class to also make jewelry and other home decor items!
hope to see you next weekend at the echo park craft fair. i'm making lots of new things and will be debuting a few pieces from a collaborative project that i have been working on. for sneak peeks please check out my instagram feed @cathy_callahan
