'A Trio of Trivets' - Rope Trivet Workshop with Wendy Nannestad of Nannestad and Sons -Saturday 19th October 1-3pm Saturday
Trivets are not only rather functional (protecting your surfaces from being damaged by hot pots and dishes) but these little numbers are blooming gorgeous as well!! Wendy Nannestad is an all-time creative gem, with so many skills, we don't know where to start. Wendy is a very familiar face at Studio Makers and Vida Flores, as she has taught a number of workshops for us over the years, and we always love getting her back for more. Wendy's trivet workshop is a simpler beginners version of the Knotted Rope Mat workshop we held recently.
20 meters of manila rope is split into 3, and traditional knotting techniques are used to create three rope trivets. Each slightly different than the other, and increasing in complexity as we progress. Each trivet is hand stitched on the reverse to secure into place. The trivets (aka pot stands) are great for the table indoors and out, and even as artwork on your wall.
Attendees will take home three completed trivets. All materials are included in the price. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions upon booking.
