Macramé Workshops with The Feral Knot
Want to learn the art of knotting?
The Feral Knot was born of creator Tanya’s desire to share her love of popular 1970’s textile and fiber arts. Tanya’s current work draws you into the traditional craft with a uniquely modern and rustic twist. Her personal style undoubtedly celebrates the wild feminine through tying together narratives of folk art with untamed landscapes.
In a natural extension of her own work, Tanya now offers the public a chance to engage in workshops to embody a visceral experience of expressive knot-work. Drawing on her 20 years of experience as an educator, facilitator, and social worker, Tanya offers each participant a solid grasp of technique and a compassionate space to learn and reveal their unique visions. She emboldens a new generation of textile artists to embrace macrame’s calming, grounding, and meditative effects, while passing along the legacy of traditional knotting.
The Feral Knot Workshops include all of the materials needed to create your very own macramé wall hanging, plant hanger, moon, chandelier, or vintage styled owl! A variety of knotting techniques will be taught. You can decide to follow the pattern that will be provided or you can choose your own adventure after learning the knots.
In these 3 to 5 hour sessions, The Feral Knot will lead demonstrations, answer questions, and provide guidance throughout the process to see you through to completion! You will also learn about the history of macrame, as well as the therapeutic benefits of textile and fiber arts. By the end of the session, you will understand the major knots involved in macramé, basic design principles, and project planning.
The very best part is that you will have your very own handmade macramé design to take home to adorn your home!

Vintage Macrame Owl Workshop at reFIND Salvage

Come join us to create your very own beautiful vintage macramé owl at reFIND Salvage, Elora, Ontario
The Feral Knot's macramé owl is reminiscent of the vintage owl designs of the 70s, but with a contemporary twist. Macramé is making a huge comeback in modern décor, it is often seen in bohemian, mid-century, and scandinavian minimalist home design. We will be working with 100% natural cotton fibre, 3 strand twisted 3/16" undyed rope, wood beads, and Lake Huron driftwood. In this 3.5 hour session, Tanya of The Feral Knot will lead demonstrations, answer questions, and provide guidance throughout the process to see you through to completion. You will learn about the history of macramé, as well as the therapeutic benefits of textile arts. By the end of the session, you will understand the major knots involved in macramé project design and you will leave with a finished product that is ready to adorn your home.
