Macramé Workshop with Dörte Bundt (California Dreaming) – Plant Hangers

Booking closed – Learn how to make the coolest plant hangers with macramé expert Dörte Bundt from California Dreaming.

Macramé is a textile technique that consists of knotting cords together to make a wide range of objects: from wall decor, lamps and rugs, to bags, belts and bracelets. Although it became very popular in the 70’s, it has a much longer tradition and has been known for centuries in many different places all around the world.

During this 4-hour class Dörte will show you the basics of this amazing technique and how to make two plant hangers. Macramé is a craft that enables you to create many more products after attending this introductory workshop. You will be able to make beautiful and modern decor items.

Dörte Bundt is a designer and the founder of California Dreaming, a Berlin based macramé design studio dedicated to reviving traditional macramé techniques and styles in modern homes.

Established in 2013, the label has experimented and produced a range of designs from ‘ready-to-hang’ macramé models available online and in retail stores, in addition to larger commissioned works for clients in galleries, restaurants and trade show environments. Having been truly inspired firsthand by spectacular interiors witnessed throughout a road-trip along the West Coast of America, back in Germany, Bundt located and salvaged old instructional material, dead-stock rope, and taught herself basic macramé design principles to launch the first product range of California Dreaming. The catalog has grown substantially in the following years, accommodating designs of far more complexity and purpose (baby-swings, marriage-altars, room dividers) and allowed for Bundt to develop her own trademark knots and decorative flourishes to the classic, timeless macramé traditions.

As she prepares to unveil a series of new designs, Dörte Bundt brings an exciting afternoon workshop to Anna & Juan for exploring and partaking in the ancient yet modern macramé craft.
