Escape to the serenity of M&D Farm for an experience inspired by nature and the change in season. Erin Di Fiore of Ohayo will lead a macramé wall hanging workshop in which you will learn to form several knots creating texture and pattern. The workshop will begin with an introduction to macramé and rope types, followed by a brief narrative of how this meditative craft has become an integral part of Erin's routine that brings peace and balance. The group will then dive into the creative process; selection of a foraged branch, cutting of rope lengths, and a step by step guide through the formation of two knot types. After this you will begin your adventure in creation and will leave the workshop with a complete piece to adorn your home.
