Alison Pascoe is a Belfast based artist and craftsperson specialising in the craft practice of macramé, a heritage knotting technique used to create decorative patterns using rope, cord and twine. Her collections are handcrafted art pieces and functional objects for modern spaces.
The practice of knot tying is a satisfying tactile experience and a mindful meditation that integrates deep relaxation alongside a high level of concentration. There is wonderful simplicity in using a single strand to create a perfectly engineered knot and a complex and decorative pattern through repetition. Her passion is sharing the benefits of practicing macramé by crafting in community and facilitating regular macramé workshops in studio and throughout the island of Ireland. Alison will also have macramé kits available to purchase on the night – a great way to introduce this practice into your home!
