Elsie Goodwin is a fiber artist who specializes in hand-dyed Macrame. She has a background in the fashion industry where she worked as a buyer for 15 years. She was born in Texas, raised in Southern California, and has been fascinated with fashion - especially textiles - since she was a little girl.
She has worked with her hands for the last 15 years; first crochet, then knitting, then weaving, then macrame. She appreciates the therapeutic aspect of it all - she thinks it's so simple, sometimes monotonous, but also complex at the same time.
She loves empowering others, encouraging the fiber art community, teaching at macrame parties, team building events, and workshops, as well connecting and talking all things craft. Her train of thought is: keep no secrets in crafting, share the knowledge, enjoy teaching others what you know and help them find their own voice.
In Elsie's workshop, students will learn the art of macrame by making their very own macrame wall hanging. will learn a few basic knots and form them into a beautiful wall hanging using 100% cotton rope - some of it hand dyed. The process is to learn, challenge yourself, share stories, and tie it all into a one-of-a-kind piece of art. The technique learned can be used as a foundation to create other macrame pieces and will be a nice step on your journey.
All materials and tools will be included in the workshop. Learn more about it here!
