Learn the age-old techniques of macramé and weaving in this workshop with Jo Abellera of KKIBO, even if you’ve never done macramé or weaving before. At the end of the workshop, you will go home with a wall hanging of your own design. Come and play with the magic of macramé!
Jo Abellera is the designer and textile artist of KKIBO, a line of handmade knitwear, clothing, macramé market bags, and fiber art made mostly in Los Angeles and her studio in the San Bernardino Mountains. Jo transforms natural fibers (including cotton, wool, alpaca, jute, hemp, and linen) into pieces that exude a deep individuality and an easy, sensual beauty. KKIBO is known for its thrilling mix of primitive, organic forms and a thoroughly modern approach to sustainable, ethical design. With KKIBO, Jo’s core mission is to make thoughtful, unique, and beautiful things that reflect the natural world—using the traditional techniques of knitting, crochet, weaving and macramé in a new way.
