Macrame Class in Saigon with Tran Hoa My

Macrame wall hangings and plant holders seem to be all the rage these days. You’ll find them decorating cute coffee shops and hanging in the windows of unique boutiques. You can buy a large macrame wall hanging but where’s the fun in that? They are surprisingly easy to make and the materials that go into making macrame are incredibly cheap!

So rather than just buy a macrame wall hanging or a plant holder, consider taking a macrame class in Saigon so you can create your own unique masterpiece!

Private Lessons

Saigon Macrame Class with Tran Hoa My

If you are looking for a private macrame lesson in your home, then you’ll definitely want to contact Tran Hoa My (she goes by My) of Ca Bin House Macrame. My taught herself how to create macrame designs several years ago and now she is an expert and teaches private lessons and workshops around Saigon.

My’s private macrame classes are incredibly reasonably priced (less than $30 USD) especially considering that they last for around 3 hours and all of the supplies are included. Plus the class will take place in the comfort of your own home.

She’ll send you some potential designs that you can create ahead of time, or you can search the web for something you like and she’ll customize it for a beginner level. So you’ll absolutely love your finished product!

My also speaks English and provides hands-on guidance so you are creating the piece on your own, but she is right there to catch any mistakes. By the end of the class you’ll have a beautiful new homemade (by you!) wall hanging and the skills you’ll need to create another macrame project in the future if you so desire.


Saigon Macrame Workshop with Tran Hoa My

If you’d prefer to learn how to macrame with a group, My also offers macrame workshops in Saigon. Workshop prices are quite affordable (less than $10 per person) but the attention won’t be as personalized as there will be a handful of others learning at the same time. Plus you won’t get to choose your own wall hanging design.

If you’re interested in joining a macrame workshop, you can check the Ca Bin House Macrame Facebook page or send My a message to inquire directly – it’s one of the most creative things to do in Saigon!

Where to Buy My’s Macrame

If you’d like to purchase a unique macrame piece but aren’t actually interested in a macrame workshop or class, My sells some of her macrame designs at Agnes Cafe in Thao Dien.

Of course, you can also check out the Ca Bin House Macrame Facebook page and contact her if you’d like to buy anything pictured there.

How to Book a Lesson

You’ll love learning to macrame with My – it’s a fun and surprisingly relaxing way to spend an afternoon!
