Luna Macrame (AM) / Foragers Basket Weaving (PM)

Are you drawn to the moon? Tune into your inner goddess this summer with our Luna Macrame workshop and create a beautiful wall hanging that as a beautiful reminder of that lunar magic! Macrame is a relaxing and therapeutic craft that keeps your hands busy and gives your mind time to rest. The process is meditative and the results a stunning reminder of that little moment of time you allowed yourself to slow down.
