'Hello Hello'

Pete can trace a knitting and knotting obsession all the way back to Newcastle, UK, where his grandparents owned an arts and craft shop. Sadly for Pete, it was very much a “look don’t touch” situation, and his passion continued to bubble away under the surface.

It wasn’t until Melbourne was plunged into lockdown due to COVID-19 that Pete’s crafting came into its own. Using locally sourced materials, Pete specialises in working raw materials into knots and patterns to create exquisite wall hangings, plant hangers, and couture clothing.

Since operating as a business in 2018, he has had the opportunity to collaborate with other like minded creatives. Set up workshops for people to come and learn the craft, while currently working on a book soon to be published later this year.

The latest venture into Macramé clothing has already gained interest from boudoir photographers, festival productions with more new exciting projects on the horizon.

Pete is always happy to talk to schools, podcasts or organisations about his artwork and passion for the knotting art form. Get in touch to arrange a visit.

Whether you're here to just discover more about the art form, book a workshop or here to purchase some handmade homewares, have a look around, if there's anything you can't find, just shoot an email over to hello@mrmacrame.com
