Join us at Leesburg Center for the Arts for a unique wall hanging workshop lead by Becky Sloan of KnotsnPots. Becky will demonstrate a handful of her favorite knotting techniques, and show you how you can knot your way to a beautiful and trendy macramé wall hanging. All you need to bring is a desire to create. No knowledge of macramé is needed. You and your friends will have a fabulous evening of knotting and fun, and you will have a wonderful piece of art that you can take home and enjoy. All materials will be provided.

Bring your friends, bring the beverages and get ready for a fun! Pre-registration is REQUIRED as space is limited.

More about your instructor:

Becky Sloan is a macramé artist who resides with her husband Ed, and their menagerie of pets in Leesburg, Florida. Originally from PA, Becky was a juried member of the Berks County Guild of Craftsman with a focus in decorative painting. In search of a new medium, multiple trips to stores to locate a macramé plant hanger for the garden made it clear that there was a void. The “do it yourself” in her led to a business venture in the art of macramé. Becky and Ed Sloan own and operate KnotsnPots, a macramé business which focuses on beautiful plant hangers, wall hangings, curtains, and more. Once popular in the 1970’s, macramé has become all the rage again. Yesterday it was a “hippie” craft. Today, macramé is trendy, chic and bohemian. In a world full of stress, macramé is a serene and peaceful craft, and Becky wants to share its revival with others.
