Welcome to the MAKE.PLAY Workshop series hosted by Object: Australian Design Centre as part of
Made By Hand Pop Up Shop.
Macrame Planter Workshop with Kitiya Palaskas
***Kit will be leading us in the workshop off her newly decked out Craft Bike!!***
This fantatsic workshop will teach you how to create lovely decorative pieces for yourself and inspire some DIY handmade gifts too!
Learn the basics of macramé - the art of hand-knotting - in this beginners workshop by craft-based designer Kitiya Palaskas. Kit will teach you a variety of simple knotting techniques that you’ll then use to make your very own plant hanger. Bring along a small vase, container, or vessel (vintage ceramics and glassware are perfect!) from home to fit inside your plant hanger to complete the look.
Suitable for ages 13+, most materials provided- we will have a few spare vessels for those unable to bring their own.
Kitiya Palaskas is a craft-based designer, creative workshop teacher, trained printmaker, and creator of tactile fun things.

You can often find her behind a sewing machine, buried under piles of fancy paper scraps, and/or frantically bedazzling anything in sight.
