Getting Creative with Cocktails: My Experience Hosting a Macrame Workshop with a Twist.
Last month, I had the honor of hosting my first macrame workshop of the year in partnership with the Everson Museum of Art. I wasn’t exactly nervous, but I was definitely excited. This event was a big deal for me, and the fact that the class sold out so quickly and was gaining so much traction made it all the more special. I had folks emailing me and DM-ing me on Instagram, and even after the class was sold out, there were still people trying to get in.
While I’ve taught macrame workshops before, I’d never done one with drinks. Part of me was worried that the drinks and food would take up too much time and we wouldn’t finish, or that the margaritas would make it more difficult for folks to comprehend and follow instructions. But all my worries were for nothing!
Once we got started, everyone made perfect gathering knots. I was really impressed by the skill level of the group! We all had our drinks in our hands and snacks in our bellies, and then we got started with the rest of the plant hanger. It was a little challenging at first, but everyone was able to take home something that they had created themselves and that would hold a plant.
Macrame can be a bit difficult, so I’m extremely proud of everyone who came out and gave it their all. The workshop was an absolute blast, and I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such a wonderful group of people.

Thank you for your continued support, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year has in store!
