Meet the Maker | Samantha Birch of Pretty Little Knots Co
The team at Beaumont Organic is proud to introduce Samantha Birch of Pretty Little Knots Co, who will be hosting our Macrame Wall Hanging Workshops at 49 Hilton Street.
Here's Samantha's story...
“I learnt how to knot over 10 years ago whilst living and volunteering in rural Ecuador. A lady from the village taught me how to make intricate jewellery using tree fibres and seeds which would be sold at the market to raise money for the village. It wasn't until I was back home a few years later that I discovered the knots I had learnt were called Macrame.
In 2014, I decided to become a stay at home mum to my two children, but I needed a creative outlet and I started making Macrame pieces as a hobby in the evenings. This quickly progressed into something more than just a hobby and I opened my Etsy shop ‘Pretty Little Knots Co’ last year selling my plant hangers and wall hangings, and I have now started running workshops to help others learn the craft."
At Samantha's workshop, you will be taught a variety of Macrame knots to create your own unique wall hanging. This will be made from 4mm natural cotton strung on your choice of copper pipe or wooden dowel which will be approximately 30cm x 60cm.
No experience is needed for this workshop - the wall hanging can be adapted depending on how slow or fast the maker is and you will be provided with working notes to take away and continue your new found craft!
Light refreshments will be provided and space is limited to 10 people so book now.
Our first class will be on Sunday 10th September, 2pm – 5pm and the cost will be £45.
