About Macrame Rainbows (CSC268)

Learn how to create a simple macramé rainbow wall hanging.

What will you learn on this course?

Macramé is a form of textile making using knotting.

Participants will learn basic macramé knotting techniques, step by step with the tutor providing support and assistance.

Working with scrap and recycled fabrics and threads, children will choose a favourite colour to build an artwork from complimentary shades, creating a rainbow affect.

Participants will unleash their imagination and artistic talents, while developing their fine motor skills and attention to detail, as they design and craft their wall hanging.

Children will finish the course with a wall hanging to take away, created in a fun, relaxed environment with other like-minded children.

Who is this course for?

This one-day course is suitable for children aged 8 to 12 years old. It is open to all ability levels and children don’t need previous experience, as full instruction and guidance will be provided by the Tutor. We provide a learning support worker and all our staff are DBS checked. Parents are not expected to accompany children on the course.

The course is accessible for children of all abilities who can participate in practical art and craft activities. A parent or carer may assist their child if required but must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support. The room is wheelchair accessible.

Age ranges are set carefully to consider key age developments, materials being used, and course stimulus. It is very important that age ranges are not too large or across key stages and therefore need to be adhered to.

Do you need to bring anything?

Please note that lunch is not provided. Children will need to bring their own lunch to eat on a supervised one-hour break.
