Macrame - Chunky Rope Necklace
£22 - 1½ hours
Learn the skills needed to weave gorgeous, on-trend chunky macrame rope necklaces!
Choose from a variety of colours of rope to weave with, then add silver-plated findings to create your own unique macrame jewellery, while enjoying a relaxed and friendly atmosphere (and tea!). You'll learn 2 designs, and have time to make both necklaces. Take home your own fab statement jewellery and a desire to make more!
Suitable for complete beginners, you will be guided through every step by Wendy, owner of The Little Craftery, and life-long crafter.
The workshop runs for approximately 1½ hours. Enjoy a chat with like minded people and learn some new skills! All materials and refreshments are included in the price.
Who is the class for?
This workshop is aimed at complete beginners, who would like to try their hand at macrame, but anyone over the age of 16 is welcome.
The skills you will learn in this class are the basic macrame skills you will need to make statement macrame necklaces from chunky rope. Wendy will take you through the tools and materials you will need and the basic techniques you will learn. You’ll be able to choose the colour you would like to use for your final pieces, and Wendy will show you every step of the way to creating your necklace.
The price includes everything you need: all materials and use of any necessary tools, full instruction from Wendy, and refreshments. You will be shown 2 designs, and make and take home a necklace in each design. Time permitting, you might even have chance to make a third necklace in your choice of design!
The findings included in the price are cord ends, lobster clasp and extension chain (as shown in the green example in the photo). There will be a choice to upgrade to a magnetic clasp (shown in the dark grey example) for an additional £2 (payable on the day).
What are the design options?
When you arrive at your class, you will be given the choice of several different colours of cord to use. We keep a small selection of colours in stock, but if you have a favourite colour you'd like to use, please let us know in advance of the class and we may be able to order it in for you. You'll be able to choose the length of your finished necklace. Wendy will show you all the techniques you need, to ensure that you make necklaces to be proud of!
How long will the class last?
The class will last approximately one and a half hours. It’s best to allow a little extra time as classes sometimes over-run depending on group sizes.
Where is the class held?
Classes are held in The Little Craftery in Field Row, Worthing, which is designed to be a functional, comfortable workspace for up to 7 participants. The shop will be closed to the public during your class, so you don’t need to worry about interruptions. If you have any special access requirements, please contact Wendy at The Little Craftery before you book to discuss, and to find out if access is available for you.
Do we need to book?
Yes, please do book in advance, as there are a limited number of places on each class (a maximum of 5 people per workshop), and we wouldn’t want you to be disappointed! We require full payment in advance in order to secure your booking. Online payments will be taken securely by either Square or Paypal (don’t worry, you don’t have to have a Paypal account!). If you’d rather not book online, you can book in person at The Little Craftery.
Do I need to bring anything?
All your materials and refreshments are supplied.
It is quite fine work, so if you use reading glasses or similar it may be useful to bring those with you.
Can I cancel or reschedule my booking?
If you are unable to attend your class, please let us know as soon as possible. Cancellations made up to 7 whole days before the class will receive a full refund. Cancellations made within 7 days, or failure to show up for your class will not be eligible for a refund.
In any circumstance where a class is cancelled by The Little Craftery, we will attempt to contact you in advance as soon as possible to either reschedule or offer a full refund, as you prefer.
