A fun girls night out at Madewest Brewery in Ventura to learn how to macrame hosted by Homemade Ventura.
If you’ve spent any time on Instagram or Pinterest then you’re well aware that macrame has made a huge comeback. As they say, everything comes full circle even in the home decor world! With that being said, when I saw Jessica from Homemade Ventura post via Instagram that she was planning on hosting some macrame workshops throughout the month of December I instantly messaged a bunch of my girlfriends and planned a girls night out.
The workshop was held a few nights ago at Madewest Brewery in Ventura and a few of us gals were able to jump in on the fun of learning how to macrame. Jessica is really talented and she had a few of her pieces on display. It was quite intimidating, but she reassured us that it looks harder than it actually is! (insert the part where I take a big swig of my beer)
Thanks to Jessica having the patience of a saint, she would teach us a step and then we’d all go back to our stations to apply what we learned. It wouldn’t take long before one of us would flag her down to ask if “we are doing this right?” A few small corrections and all of us were well on our way towards creating a masterpiece.
If you live in the Ventura area, Homemade Ventura will be announcing some new workshops today on Instagram! They sell out fast so don’t wait!
We’re making good progress! I actually found the art of learning how to macrame very zen-like and therapeutic. I could really get into this hobby! A few more classes with Jessica and I’ll feel comfortable tackling my first solo project.
Thanks to Lindsay & Jill from The 805 Diary for joining me on this fun night out! Who knew the art of macrame could be so much fun?!? Now I have a gorgeous piece of bohemian wall art that is 100% handcrafted by me. I’ll take pride in that every time I look over at it.
If you’re in the Ventura area and plan on going to one of the next workshops, make sure you let me know because it’s a possibility that I’m up for going again!
Keep Living a Stylized Life.
