About this Workshop

Description

Join me in making a simple macrame plant hanger for indoor plants.  Macrame is a form of textile that is produced using knotting techniques.  This beautiful project represents the artisanal richness of India’s vast, culturally diverse people.

The macrame plant hanger was the first item that I made in my macrame journey.  Like many children in India, I have grown up watching my parents and grandparents partaking in the craft of macrame.  I started making macrame while in college, when one of my aunts taught me how to tie the basic knots.  I was able to practice my craft while on my maternity break, and since then I’ve launched a macrame business that enables me to share my macrame art with people in India and all over the world!

With life being lived more and more indoors these days, these plant hangers are a beautiful way to bring the outdoors in, and bring greenery all around ourselves.  Macrame is used extensively in home decor, in a variety of ways.  These include not only plant hangers, but also wall hangings, pillow covers, table runners etc. This craft is made all year round, and has become quite popular in recent years with the greater appreciation for handmade items.

I look forward to sharing this beautiful craft with you!

This project is not difficult to make, but requires a bit of dexterity. Children under age 12 would likely do well to have an adult participate with them.

As far back as I can remember, I have always loved crafts.  Most evenings after school were spent making something.  My house is a testimony of my love for crafts and in every room, there is something on display that I have collected over the years, or made myself.  Apart from macrame, candle-making and decoupage are my favorite crafts to make.  A beautiful hand-crafted candle is my pride and joy, and holds a special place in my living room.

I live in New Delhi, the capital and cultural hub of India.  All year, we have a plethora of events and festivals that depict the diverse customs and traditions of our country’s distinct regions and states.  These customs have inspired me to create.  I love working with my hands and am happiest when I am creating something.  The joy of turning a vision into something tangible is like nothing else I know.  I have been fortunate to have turned my love of crafts into a successful business. 

New Delhi is in the north of India, where cold winters have inspired women to knit.  We knit in order to prepare for winter, but we also knit for the pleasure we find in the act of knitting.  I’ve seen my mother and grandmother knit for hours, then gifting handmade sweaters and shawls to friends and family.  We wear them with pride, comfort, and style, and they are often passed down from one generation to another.  Even my own children have items that were originally knitted for me or my husband. 

In my macrame, I love using tasseled ropes that are handmade by local women, as per my requirements.  I use a lot of colour in my pieces, in efforts to capture my country's love for everything colourful.  

It is no surprise that macrame has survived and thrived for over seven hundred years, and traveled from one continent to another.  The craft has been assimilated into the culture of many foreign lands; it is my personal tribute to this craft to spread it even further, by teaching it to a new generation. 

I am post-graduate in management by qualification and a small business owner by passion.  I have been fortunate enough to turn a hobby into a business.  I love working with my hands and am happiest when I am creating something.  The joy of turning a vision into something tangible is like nothing else I know.  As a Mom to a toddler and a tween, macrame craft gives me some much needed down-time and I am re-energized to run after my super-active boys.
