A one-day workshop for people over 19 years old, and of all abilities. Learners will be taught the skill of macramé with a very experienced tutor and each attendee will make a macramé object using their new found skills. The course will run on Monday 11th December 2023; a lunch will be provided (you can also bring your own if preferred). It is a chance to learn new skills, have some ‘me time’, whilst meeting new people in a safe, relaxed environment.
There are no formal assessments; you will just be asked to feedback as to whether the course has delivered to meet your expectations and whether it has improved your health and wellbeing.
At the end of this workshop, if you’d like to continue with your learning in this subject, you’ll be able to progress onto our Starter Level workshop or course.
Learners will be encouraged to progress their learning; ARK and the tutor can help find suitable macramé courses. There are local places where macramé workshops are hosted; the tutor also attends ARK to run the workshops on site.
Our workshops and courses are designed to provide essential skills, develop confidence and resilience, improve your health & wellbeing, prepare you for further learning or employment, provide ways to learn with your family and build communities. We have a wide range of workshops and courses and you can explore more on our website. There’s something for everyone!
