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.
Since operating as a creative business in 2018, Pete has had the opportunity to collaborate with other like minded creatives. Set up workshops Melbourne wide to teach the ancient craft, became the author of an internationally published macramé book, all while working on collaborative photoshoots with his couture macrame clothing.
Mr Macrame has been featured with Timeout Melbourne, The Broadsheet Melbourne, Spotlight Stores with his published book currently stocked at Australia's leading art and craft retailer K-Mart.
Using locally sourced materials, Pete specialises in working raw materials into knots and patterns to create exquisite wall hangings, plant hangers, and couture clothing.
Pete looks to utilise the craft within the fashion industry and bring his unique, creative techniques to the to the catwalks. His Art-wear and macrame dresses have already been well recognised across festivals, photoshoots and is currently working on a sustainable, made to order collection, to be released early 2023.
Pete is always happy to engage and talk about the macrame craft on podcasts, organisations or in schools about his artwork and passion for the knotting art form.
