Craft Sunday: Macramé Plant Hangers with Le Petit Moose

#CraftSunday

We’re delighted to welcome back Stephanie Fradette, the fibre artist behind the brand Le Petit Moose, for an afternoon of macramé. Working with bold colours inspired by the ever-changing landscapes from her world travels, Stephanie creates woven, knotted and tufted contemporary wall hangings full of rich textures. 

Working with a selection of fibres in a range of colours, Stephanie will guide you through the steps to create your own plant hanger using macramé. An ancient craft that can be traced back hundreds of years, macramé enjoyed a resurgence in the 1970’s, only to fall back out of popularity in the 80’s. Join Stephanie as she brings the craft bang up to date, combining age old knots and colourful materials to create a contemporary plant hanger that can be used to display plants indoors or out. 

We’ll be using twines and jute made by local business Nutscene. Originally created in Dundee in 1922, the company still uses the same machinery to make their range of products which includes twines, jute and raffia.

Once the workshop is complete, take your macramé hanger home and use it to show off your favourite plant. You'll also be able to apply your new found skills to try other projects so you can continue to decorate your home using this historical knotting technique.
