HANDWOVEN MACRAME ART
Here you will find unique, textured wall pieces that speak of gratitude for the simple, authentic life. Each piece of Home Vibes Macramé is made by hand utilising natural products like unbleached cotton and revived driftwood from local beaches along the East Coast of NSW and Queensland, Australia.
Why choose handmade art?
> Your piece is unique. Natural differences in driftwood and the handmade process ensure that no two pieces are identical.
> Your piece is high quality. many hours are put into each wall hanging and I take pride in the pieces I create. The driftwood is cut and sanded, the copper is polished and coated and ends of cotton are fastened to ensure each product will not only look great, but will last. If I am not happy with the aesthetics or the durability of a piece it will not leave the studio.

I run workshops in South East QLD occasionally and also travel down to Port Macquarie to teach sometimes. If you'd like to learn macrame and have a venue to suggest or if you're a venue interested in hosting a workshop please send me a message! Teaching is one of my favourite parts of this journey.
I also teach online thought my video based Learn To Macrame program if you're in a rural area or can't make it to an in person workshop!
I love creating custom art pieces and large installations. I have created wall hangings and plant hangers for shopping centres, restaurants, offices and homes. If you have something in particular in mind please get in touch! Once you provide me with some information about what youd like, we (or I) can draw up a sketch and give you a quote with no strings attached. I love making new things so I would be so happy to hear from you!
The large "DOMONI" macrame arch is available to hire Australia wide. I am also taking custom orders for weddings backdrops - instead of hiring you can keep your macrame and hang it on your wall as a reminder of your special day for many years to come. They look fabulous above the bedhead.

After losing touch with my creative side while I studied at university, I began to dabble in fibre art a few years ago when my Nan taught me how to knit (not knot). After breaking my knitting needles half way through a project (how annoying!), I started experimenting with crochet and weaving. I stumbled across macramé somewhere down the fiber art road and I fell in love instantly due to its creative freedom, versatility and non-reliance on rules. I really liked that there was not much of it around either - it meant that I want comparing myself to others work - I was just able to let my creativity flow and through trial and error teach myself to create work I loved. After many months of experimenting with different types of rope, mountings and patterns I opened my online shop in 2015 with just a couple of wall hangings.
Its been an exciting journey since then! It's so fun to try something new each time and watch how the piece comes to life - starting with simple knots and evolving into more complex patterns. Now, I am able to "work" from home with my new baby girl - what an amazing privilege! Something I could not do so easily with my Physiotherapy degree.
Now, along with making macrame myself, I also really enjoy encouraging others to reconnect with their creative side both in person and online via workshops, patterns and DIY kits.
Macramé encourages me to slow down and embrace the moment; it gives me time to reflect, time to unwind and time to just be. In those quiet moments creating, I am content and I guess in a way, it is my kind of meditation.
I hope the piece you choose to hang in your home or the project you have decided to create uplifts your spirit as much as it did mine.
Let the Home Vibes shine!
