available dates :

February - September 2022

“None of the macrame classes near me had what I was looking for, but a craft holiday was an ideal getaway.”

About The Course

When life leaves your creativity blocked sometimes the only thing to do is to get away from it all.


And what better way to do that than with a macrame course at Gartmore House.

You’ll spend 4 days in the workshop learning all the principles and knots of macrame with hands on guidance and tuition, from your tutor, Lucy Wayman, whilst enjoying the comforts of Gartmore House. Macrame can be used in so many decorative and practical ways in your home, wardrobe and garden.

Enjoy a relaxing stay surrounded by stunning Scottish countryside and learn from the very best. There isn’t anything like our macrame courses. Through a series of specially designed projects you’ll develop the skills and confidence to create an advanced macrame piece playing with size and intricacy by the end of the course. You’ll learn how to estimate rope lengths, plan designs, add colour and be playful with your projects to create one of a kind macrame. If you have any treasures gems such as beads, driftwood, hoops and charms, looking for a permanent home, bring them along and Lucy will show you how to incorporate them into your design. You’ll come away from the course with beautiful unique macrame pieces and the skillset to continue making at home.
