Is there anything more rewarding than mastering a craft you love and sharing it with others?
I never knew what Macrame was until I came in contact with TwoMe, a creative business run by Isabella Strambio who teaches the craft. Macrame is a type of textile produced using knotting patterns and techniques.
Isabella started originally with a blog about learning twelve crafts in twelve months. She tells The Startup Gold “My first craft was macrame and I got addicted, the same thing with natural dye. After about six months of starting my blog, I started teaching workshops and I haven’t stopped since“.
Isabella loves teaching and sharing her knowledge with others, inspiring people to be more creative in their daily life. In summer of 2017 she quit her career as an interior designer to work on Twome full time. Today she teaches regular workshops, at events, team building workshops, writes tutorials for magazine, blogs and runs online courses. Since her article published in the Sunday Telegraph , she has been asked to run macrame workshops at big brands including Facebook, Moo, Beyond, Nandos & Creative Debut.
She also has a curated online shop with natural dyed and macrame homewares. One of her favourite items, a naturally dyed Japanese apron, is a finalist for the Etsy Design Award 2019.
You can join one of Isabella’s workshops in London or in the lovely English countryside here. You can also sign up for an online course if you are abroad or just want to test the waters before attending a workshop.
