Macramé knots can be used to make textiles.  Knowing a few knots opens up a new world to you.  The craft was used by sailors long ago, especially in elaborate or ornamental knotting forms, to decorate anything from knife handles to bottles to parts of ships.  We might find it more useful for belts, bags and plant hangers.  We’ll complete a project TBD in class.  The leader will bring all supplies and equipment for use in class.
