🪢 Rejoice in this ancient craft, a poetry woven, a moment to bask. In the gentle art of macrame's embrace, where knots become verses, elegantly traced.

Tired of plain dowels?

After 5+ years of creating macrame wall pieces, I’m at a point where I prefer to paint dowels used for wall hangings. This nifty color wheel helps me to determine which colors to mix when I’m unsure how to do so. Today, I needed a dark teal. I’ll be using green, blue, and black to achieve the paint color desired for the dowel. These color wheels are very handy.

Wall Hanging

Not sure how I feel about the colour combination, anything I should change? Also, hasn’t been steamed straight yet, don’t mind the curls!

Soaring High

"Soaring High" embodies the majestic flight of eagles in the desert skies of Phoenix, The intricate wings capture the grace and power of these magnificent creatures as they soar above the rugged landscapes. Through this artwork, viewers are invited to experience the thrill of soaring high alongside these iconic birds, connecting with the untamed beauty of the Arizona desert. @rbmacroart

Feedback on early pieces

Just looking for some basic constructive criticism. I started making macrame during the pandemic and pick it back up every now and then.

New to This- Starter Kit Suggestions

Hi all! I am 32 with 2 kids and trying to work on a new hobby a year. I’ve always wanted to do macrame so no better time to begin than the present.

Are there any kits on Amazon that anyone can recommend that would teach me the basics? Is there something else that’s better than a kit to do this?

I’m thinking I just want something that’s going to teach me knots and basic patterns, which once I master will hopefully encourage me to branch out and do my own patterns. I’m looking to start with wall hangings and possibly move on from there to plant holders.

Thanks in advance!

Intermediate-Advanced Patterns

I'm looking for more complicated patterns to push myself. I'd like something with variety or unusual knots

WIP (work in progress) Nordic runes greeting piece

Thoughts? The runes are - top to bottom, left to right- protecting, stability of hearth and home, hope, trust, generosity, prosperity, evolution of spirit, and joy/ blessings. Intended to be hung at the threshold.

What to do with wax thread.

I have started making macrame bracelets and such. I accidentally bought some wax thread and the texture is so sticky and the thread looks flat. What is a use for them? What can I do with wax thread?
