Forestmacrame on the shore of lake Pielinen
Welcome to learn the basics of macrame technique and enjoy the beautiful forest and lake nature of Nurmes in a new and unique way!
On this excursion, we walk about 300 meters in the middle of a forest on a wide and easy-to-pass path and we will arrive at the shore of lake Pielinen near the cozy Ellu`s hut. Under the guidance of a instructor, you will look for suitable trees for making macrame work. Then you attach naturefriendly, unique and ergonomic macramee racks to the trees and let the making of macrame knots calm and relax together with the surrounding nature. During the excursion, you will receive clear instructions and personal guidance on the step-by-step process of making the macramee wall hanging called "Naavaparta". The name of the wall hanging is lichenbeard in english. What a wonderful gift or memory of the trip it is! You can also choose the color of your work from several color options. On the trip, you will also learn what things to consider when making macrame in the nature. When the wall hangings are ready, we together enjoy local delicacies while admiring nature and our "Naavaparta" wall hangings.
