This gorgeous book will show you how to create breathtaking works of wall art and statement home decor - all made using simple macrame knots, natural dyes and 100 per cent recycled materials.
Start by learning 18 key knots and 8 beautiful patterns, all shown clearly using step-by-step photography. Learn how to use natural dyes and how to pre-treat and dye your string. Key safety advice is given, as well as helpful tips for working with large pieces of macrame, knotting from an irregular-shaped support and keeping an even tension.
The 16 projects are divided into 4 chapters: Macrame on the wall, Macrame to hang, Macrame for indoors & outdoors, and Macrame to decorate. The projects range from reworked classics such as the wall hanging and the plant hanger, which have been given a fresh, Insta-ready twist, to a wreath, bunting, hanging bedside table, mirror hanger, rug and tassels. Each project clearly explains which knots to use, the difficulty level, how long the project will take, plus photographs of the steps are provided as necessary.
The projects are easy to follow, genuinely desirable and, best of all, really simple to make!
