workshops


Discover the joy of macramé with a wide range of workshops and courses hosted by macrame artist, Alison Pascoe. A professional artist and craftsperson, Alison shares her passion and the benefits of practicing macramé by facilitating workshops for individuals, groups and organisations throughout the island of Ireland. The practice of knot tying is a satisfying tactile experience and a mindful meditation that integrates deep relaxation alongside a high level of concentration. Her tailored workshops explore the beautiful simplicity of creating decorative patterns with a single strand and a series of basic macrame knots. The ASTRL Fibres Macramé Studio is a workshop and learning space dedicated to the craft practice of macrame. Located in East Belfast, the newly renovated studio offers a relaxed and inclusive space for small, in person workshops. Courses are suitable for absolute beginners looking for a challenge and for those interested in further developing their skills. Here’s what some past participants have to say…
