home: made [ baskets ]
This year we are seeing rattan, bamboo and woven homeware making a huge comeback. A popular choice for many is baskets, now being used for more than just storage.
How about turning one into a light pendant, hanging planter or as decorative objects for the wall. We found some cool ideas at homestolove.com.au as well as a lovely woven basket wall hanging at casawatkinsliving.com

Amongst all the great workshops on offer by our favourites The London Craft Club, we spotted they have a macrame workshop in October.
Book now for this exciting and creative way to spend a few hours.
When: Sunday 8th October 2.00 – 5.00 pm
Where: Todd Sloane 71 High St Epping CM16 4BA
We’re carrying on our love affair with macramé. It’s a great way to make a wall hanging – and it’s way quicker than weaving, knitting or quilting. If you’ve been putting off taking up a new skill because you’re busy, this might be the one for you. Plus you’ll have the skills you need to make all sorts of plant holders, wall hangings, jewellery and more. Macrame is super versatile and looks good in everything from kitchen string to leather cord, so what are you waiting for? Now’s the time to pick up the skill and get creative with it!
We’ll be using recycled jersey yarn created by our favourites over at Hoooked – we love their bright colours and sustainable manufacturing. Choose from pink, yellow, white or black. We’ll also supply a foraged rustic stick to hang your work from that’s been washed and heat-treated so its clean and dry!
– jersey yarn recycled by Hoooked

– fully illustrated instruction sheet to take away with you
