    Macramé Earrings Workshop with Prosecco

    Calling all lovers of boho handmade accessories! This macramé earring-making workshop with bubbles is the one for you.

    Macramé is a creative and relaxing craft focusing on tying strings into knots and is a great way of relieving stress. In this 2.5-hour workshop, you will spend time with a glass of fizz in the workshop room of Prior at Cabot Circus, where your host Aggy from Knots and Stalks will teach you how to knot your own pair of wooden and recycled cotton macramé earrings.

    Aggy will provide advice on choosing a design, and then you’ll get to choose from a selection of colourful recycled cotton cords, so your earrings will suit your tastes perfectly. Once you’re set with your colours, you’ll be guided through the knot-making process as you get hands-on with your materials.

    At the end of the workshop, you’ll leave with a feeling of satisfaction as you put your newly made earrings on your ears and show them off in town!

    Macramé Mandalas & Sound: Self Awareness Practice

    Looking for ways to increase your self-awareness, carve out time for yourself and learn a new skill in a peaceful atmosphere? Then join Aggy from Knots and Stalks, for her well-being workshops, where you will unlearn old habitual patterns through the practice of the art of macramé, contemplate the inner dialogue and enjoy a healing sound bath that will help you drop into a meditative state.

    During each workshop after grounding exercises you will be working on a macramé mandala which can be used as a wall piece or a table decoration. The focus of the meeting is the meditative process of making, affecting the purification and healing, rather than the finished item. You can dedicate your practice to a specific chakra you’d like to focus on by setting an intention and choosing an appropriate cord colour (guides will be provided). The process is enhanced by a Tibetan singing bowl and gong bath, which helps you enter the deeply relaxing alpha brain waves and connect to your subconscious. You’re also welcome to take a moment to consult tarot and oracle cards about matter you’re facing in your life.

    HOW TO SEW A ROMAN BLIND

    Roman blinds are a great way of dressing a window, giving a simple, unfussy look. Whether you choose a patterned or plain fabric, you can make a feature of your windows without the expense of curtains.

    The aim of this class is to demonstrate all the techniques and stitches required to make a lined and interlined roman blind using your sewing machine and also sewing by hand to create a professional looking finish. You will create a 1m x 1m sample blind which will be velcroed onto a metal headrail.

    This class is suitable for anyone with basic hand sewing and sewing machine skills. If you are unsure whether you have these skills, why not sign up to our introductory class “How to get the best from your sewing machine”.

    All our classes at Pretty Sitting are designed to give students professional standard teaching in small groups. So, places are always limited, but we run a programme of classes throughout the year, and hopefully you can find dates that suit.
    Please bring a packed lunch with you. We have a small kitchen/dining facility within the workshop where you can use a fridge, microwave and kettle. Alternatively, there are a number of food shops and eateries locally in the Gorge or in the village centre.
