Natural Jute Plant Hanger workshops

Natural Jute Plant Hanger workshops

Natual Jute Plant Hanger workshops at Taran Eco Designs studio at Corris Craft Centre.


Using brightly coloured natural jute fibres you will be learning the simple knotting skills needed to make a beautiful macramé hanger perfect for plant display and home decor.

Your host will be Alice Thomas:
Alice Thomas is a Welsh artist based near Aberystwyth in the Dyfi Valley. She began creative knot weaving many years ago working mainly in embroidery threads and beading, creating jewellery and small pieces. Over the past few years, her work has grown and she now creates on a much larger scale using mainly jute twine and recycled cotton cord.

"I use only natural, biodegradable, ethically sourced materials. I am always searching for new ways to weave more from this land into my creations.
Using a combination of found objects; nuts, seeds, driftwood and cones. With natural dyes; nettle, birch, gorse, oak, alder. I am creating pieces that resonate strongly with my surroundings and are rooted here in this land."
