It’s an art form that’s believed to have originated with 13th-century Arab weavers – and now you can give it a try.
The New West Artists Gallery is presenting a macramé workshop with Betteanne Wilson on Thursday, June 20 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Macramé, for those unfamiliar with it, is an art form in which cord or string is knotted in patterns to make a variety of decorative articles.
The $50 (cash) workshop fee includes one-on-one instruction from Wilson and the supplies needed to make a macramé wall hanging for a small plant or succulent. The plant isn’t included, but you’ll get the rope, a dowel and a mason jar for the plant. If one session isn’t enough, Wilson will provide a second class for $20.
Wilson serves as resident artist at the New West Artists Gallery, at 712C 12th St. It’s open Thursdays through Sundays from noon to 6 p.m. To sign up for her workshop, call 778-984-1928.
