In this workshop, participants will learn how to create their own macramé and about its significance in the Middle East. Macramé has roots in the Middle East, with the term coming from the 13th century Arabic weaving term “migramah” meaning "fringe." The weavers used to create decorative fringes on camels and horses. Nowadays, they create the macramé in a modern way. Participants will experience creating a modern macramé using a chic bohemian design for a beautiful full-sized wall hanging.
