Macrame with Jessie Kanji
People will learn the art of using ancient macrame knots first established by arab weavers to make a bracelet. Giving them the opportunity to experience the feeling of grounding through the creation of patterns, working with colours and their hands to create something tangible.
The Macrame Bracelet Making workshops will take the format of 3 x 2 hour sessions. In the
first session, a basic macrame knot that creates a stripped pattern will be taught use embroidery thread. In the second session we will move on to a slight more advanced knot that creative a chevron pattern using embroidery thread. In the third session a spiral
macramé knot will be taught using wax cord. Each session will build on the prior session in
terms of building hand dexterity.
About Jessie
Following the immigration of her grandparents from Gujarat, India in the 1940s, Jessie Kanji grew up in
Wellington, Aotearoa. Inspired by mother nature, studies in physiology and indigenous cultures, she
creates abstract forms. Catalysed by her journey on the West Coast of New Zealand, her art searches for
the balance between order and chaos.

Studying the interconnectedness of life through exploring the interplay of physiological processes, Jessie
plays with the elements of connection, movement, space and colour. Her artwork expresses the dance
of life processes through mother nature as reflected in the human form.

Jessie has been running workshops for several years, most recently she was involved in commonspace a
government funded initiative in Wellington, New Zealand. Jessie advocates for the healing power of art
in all its forms and the meaning it can bring to all shades of humanity.
