The Middle Aisle brings popular Melbourne Macramé institution to Sydney this weekend

The Middle Aisle, developed and led by Melbourne graphic designer, stylist and Macramé artist Maggie May, has flourished into a popular fixture within the Melbourne arts scene in recent years.

Holding an impressive following online and spurring on that momentum with the opening of Think Thornbury (a creative enterprise established by Maggie and fiancée, musician Josh Kelly, to facilitate workshops, live music as well as a retail business), The Middle Aisle’s permanent presence in Victoria has drawn strong numbers to their High Street location since its unveiling earlier this year.

This weekend, The Middle Aisle packs up its rope and Macramé tools in heading to Sydney for their first ever interstate workshop. Running to the same framework as the ongoing Melbourne events, Maggie will be taking participants through this hands-on workshop designed to boost creative confidence, all the while creating an impressive piece of Macramé at the same time.

Suitable for beginners as well as those looking for a Premium level arts lesson, The Middle Aisle’s workshop encourages originality and versatility in design – bring your mates and get handsy.

Find out more about the Sydney event, running at Lost in Paris in Enmore on October 21st, here.
