Make 16 statement pieces for your home using 100 per cent recycled materials.

This gorgeous book will show you how to create breathtaking works of wall art and statement home décor all made using simple macramé knots, natural dyes and 100 per cent recycled materials. 

Start by learning 18 key knots and 8 beautiful patterns, all shown clearly using step-by-step photography. Learn how to use natural dyes and how to pre-treat and dye your string. Key safety advice is given, as well as helpful tips for working with large pieces of macramé, knotting from an irregular-shaped support and keeping an even tension.

The 16 projects are divided into 4 chapters: Macramé on the wall, Macramé to hang, Macramé for indoors & outdoors, and Macramé to decorate. The projects range from reworked classics such as the wall hanging and the plant hanger, which have been given a fresh, Insta-ready twist, to a wreath, bunting, hanging bedside table, mirror hanger, rug and tassels. Each project clearly explains which knots to use, the difficulty level, how long the project will take, plus photographs of the steps are provided as necessary.

The projects are easy to follow, genuinely desirable and, best of all, really simple to make!
