Ready for winter crafting?

Cosy up at The Kiosk for our intermediate Macramé class. There’ll be music, cups of tea and all you need to know to craft a wall hanging plant holder! These are not only a wonderfully looking craftwork to hang your trailing plants in but highly functional as they sit flat against the wall – perfect when you’re adding to the plant whanau.
