Instructor: Vic Golden of bloomin’ BUCKET "After a 23-year career in academia as a college graphic design professor, I took another road to lean into something new: macramé. Well, it’s not new — I have been weaving since I was young. I have won awards with my weavings, even a college scholarship, but I didn’t pursue it. Nevertheless, I was constantly weaving and playing with fiber. And now? I am taking this passion and making it into a business!

Our goal at bloomin’ BUCKET is to share the love and passion for all things woven, and to be open with others on how to create macramé. Although macramé was a massive hit in the 1970s, its history can be dated back as far as the 13th-century. Arabic decorative weavers used knots to secure loose ends of woven textiles — rugs, clothing, or household items.

bloomin’ BUCKET combines the ancient ways with modern ideas to create a functional macramé piece for any use. We always try to use a 100% recycled, sustainable cotton cord when designing our products and teaching our workshops, so you, as the customer, get the very best.
