Knot Your Average Day:
Crafting magic through Macramé!
To promote relaxation and foster bonding among our staff, the Health Promoting Hospital Committee introduced a fun-filled on-campus activity: Macramé Keychain Making!
If you were into the 90s trend of making friendship bands, macramé is the craft used to create those bands! Now, it has made a come back as modern macramé in various forms of lifestyle decor such as plant hangers, coasters, and wall hanging decors!
In this beginner-friendly class, the instructor guided the staff through the looping process of macramé-making. It was heartening to see staff from the different job groups coming together, bonding over a common interest - crafting! Conversations flowed effortlessly, with laughter echoing as some of us got confused over the loops, making the workshop a memorable experience filled with shared moments and newfound connections.
Attending the macramé workshop proved to be a fun experience for all. It was not merely about learning a craft, but immersing oneself in a mindful and communal experience, and using it as a way to unwind and connect with others.
