Meet Anna from uzliky
Hi everyone! My name is Anna (find me here on Instagram) and I’m a Macrame enthusiast who lives in the Czech Republic.
What was your process in becoming a Macrame artist?
The first time I saw Macrame was in an interior design video as a side project for a living room redecoration. I immediately thought to myself that’s something I want to try one day!
That day came about four years later when I was feeling particularly restless and really wanted to create something with my hands. I instantly fell in love with Macrame.
It was so soothing and rewarding and I felt so much joy and creativity while working with the cords. There was no question that macrame was going to become my new hobby!
That first project was a relatively small wall hanging but soon after I made a much larger one that tested my patience and skills a lot more.
What are some of your favorite Macrame projects to work on?
To this day Macrame wall hangings are probably my favorite projects although chandeliers are definitely right there up next to them.
In general, I’m more drawn to do bigger pieces that are more of a statement and create more of the wow effect.
But then again, the bigger the piece the longer it takes and time is often a luxury for me so sometimes I need to make compromises too.
Where do you find inspiration for your next Macrame project?
Whatever the project is, the one thing that is constant in my process is that I want to explore and be creative.
So I always start a new project with curiosity – what is the thing that I want to try next?
Is it a new color? A new type of cord? A new knot? Dying the cords? Painting the dowel? The endless sea of possibility is what gets me so excited every time I’m getting ready to make a new Macrame piece.
Tell us about your YouTube channel!
My love of that creative process is why I’ve decided to start my YouTube channel uzliky. I want to share my creative ideas in the hopes that they will inspire other people. And so far it seems to be working!
It’s amazing to see all the positivity and support coming through the comments. I’ve also come to appreciate that Macrame means different things for different people and it can have an incredibly positive influence on our mental health as well.
What are your best tips for beginners?
If you’ve never tried Macrame before, give it a go! There is a reason why it’s becoming so popular again… it’s a great creative outlet!
It can be a bit overwhelming at first so I have done a short series for all the Macrame newbies on my channel which takes you through what skills and supplies you need, how to choose the right cord, and how to measure cords for your project:
