Macrame was actually invented thousands of years ago by bored fishermen waiting for a catch. After mending their nets, they got creative...as humans always do.
Since then, it has gone in and out of fashion countless times!
Now, macrame appears with a modern twist. New types of cord, new approaches to design, and natural dyes all combine to create the warm, textured styles so desired.
With years of design experience and a practiced eye for what looks good and what will work in this medium, I approach this as an art form.
Selling at the Santa Barbara Beach ArtWalk on Sundays, and here on this website, I also conduct workshops for people wanting to give macrame a try!
