About the event

Join Macramé Artist Alison Pascoe of ASTRL Fibres for this in person workshop held on board HMS Caroline. The workshop will provide you with expert guidance and introduce you to some basic macramé knots and techniques, to help you understand and enjoy the mindful process of creating a beautiful textile wall hanging to take home with you. This session is suitable for absolute beginners or anyone with a bit of knot know-how. All materials are provided.

Alison Pascoe is a Belfast based artist and craftsperson specialising in the craft practice of Macramé, the art of knot tying. Using handcrafted knot work and heritage techniques Alison explores pattern, form and colour using a variety of natural materials and sustainable methods. The ethos at the core of her practice as ASTRL Fibres is to discover new perspectives on traditional craft. From bespoke artworks, craft objects and restoration, Alison recognises the importance of championing heritage crafts and a culture of skill sharing to keep traditional techniques like Macramé, in practice.

The workshop is suitable for adults and is free of charge, but must be booked in advance by emailing


Where is it taking place?

HMS Caroline
Alexandra Dock, Queen’s Road


HMS Caroline is a restored First World War ship that has been converted into a museum and visitor attraction. Due to the historic nature of the vessel, there are some accessibility considerations to be aware of when planning your visit. The ship is accessed via a ramp from the dockside. As the vessel is afloat, the gradient of the ramp changes due to the tidal nature of Belfast Lough; the ramp can be particularly steep at high tide.
