 Joining us from the mountains for Southern California, Jo Abellera brings the spirit and love of wild places to her textile practice. In this two-day workshop, students will learn to follow patterns using macramé knots to design and create a version of Jo’s carefully designed Macramé Market Bag. With hands-on instruction and design support, students will learn the process of detailed macramé construction, from knotting techniques and patterning to the introduction of three-dimensional form. Students will leave with their own uniquely hand-crafted, made-to-last market bag made of natural jute.

Open to beginning and first-time weavers, 16yrs + up
