Welcome to Knot in Love, I’m Marcia Thornander.
A qualified teacher with interests in art, printmaking, photography, textiles and all sorts of craft. I studied art at Teachers College, and sometime later at TAFE in Art and Craft Design and Environmental Design. Currently I’m obsessed with macramé which I have been doing for many years.
I first learned the macrame from a school friend at 8 years of age. We spent hours doing macramé in the playground. I would explore the local haberdashery and florists shops in my West Australian country town to find suitable materials.
Now I love markets, garage sales, swap meets and beachcombing to name a few. I try to be open to whatever presents itself and I’m always learning and looking for something I can use in my art, recycling and innovating as I go.
I’ve decided to turn my obsession with macramé into a small business, Knot in Love. This journey is new and I anticipate will be ever evolving as I explore the world of macramé teaching and learning.
Feel free to contact me with any suggestions and ideas:
I use macramé to relax as it really requires concentration to do.
The bonus is I get to make beautiful things at the same time.
