macrameMacrame is so hot right now. This February, Reverse Garbage jumps on the Macrame bandwagon with a Macrame Plant Hanger workshop, with a twist.

RG workshop facilitators introduce their signature salvaged materials as an alternative to traditional macrame materials.

Within the workshop, participants will be shown the ropes, exploring basic macrame techniques to create their own quirky, unique and sustainable plant hangers.

“Brisbane has seen a renewed appreciation for handmade items.” says Workshop Co-ordinator, Nadine Schmoll.

“Taking part in this workshop will allow participants to create their very own one-of-a-kind piece of art, while also treading lightly on the earth by diverting materials from going to landfill.” Nadine says.

The Macrame Plant Hangers Eco-Art Workshop runs on Saturday 22 February from 10:00am – 11:30am. The workshop will be held at Reverse Garbage, 20 Burke St Woolloongabba and is suitable for participants aged 13 years and up. Please note: plants are not provided.
