Make Do Drink is delighted to bring you our next workshop collaboration – Make Do Drink; Knot. A Macrame Wall Hanging Workshop hosted in partnership with Kiln and Craft.

Make Do Drink; Knot

Macrame is the ancient art of knotting, and in recent months, it has made a huge comeback. Whether as plant holders or wall hangings, large or small, they are a Scandi design dream and look ace! Plus, the crafting itself just needs time and patience, no prior knowledge needed! 

This workshop is the perfect opportunity to learn the art of macrame. (To those not in the know, that's knots!)  We'll start the session off with a marvellous Mojito, then our expert maker will talk you through at least three of the key knotting techniques, and then you can get started on the three unqiely designed hangings that you'll get to take away.  There'll be step by step instructions on what to do next, along with experts on hand to guide you through. So the only thing you'll need to think about is if you'd prefer to work with natural linen or mustard yellow yarn, and where you're going to hang your masterpieces when you get them home!

Each workshop is 2 hours, so there will be plenty of time to ask our expert questions and produce something that looks incredible! The hangings you make on the day will be unique designs to the Make Do Drink workshop, but if you get the bug, Kiln & Craft will be bringing along some of their other kits that you could pick up and take home. 

We are hosting this session at Cafune, the South American cafe spot in Preston City Centre. It's colourful walls and chipboard decor make it the perfect backdrop for creating some Macrame designs. That, teamed with a refreshing Mojito, make it the perfect Sunday afternoon session. 

The workshop sessions are the perfect way to spend an afternoon with friends, family, or even focusing on some well-deserved 'me' time. All workshop groups will be small, and the casual settings make them the perfect place to meet new people and have some fun. 

Each ticket includes: 

A marvellous Mojito on arrival  

A step by step guide from our expert maker and everything you need to get hands on and get knotting 

Your choice of natural linen or mustard yellow  

3 x Hand Designed Macrame Wall Hangings, each showcasing a different type of knot
