Hi, I'm Bex. I run Terracotta & Twine out of my home office here in Bradford, where I spend my time designing patterns, making macrame and occasionally dramatic dancing to Total Eclipse of the Heart.

I made my first disastrous macrame project many years ago and swore I'd never try it again. Thankfully in 2020 I did try again, after falling in love with macrame when I bought my house the year before.


I set out to make a macrame plant hanger for my living room and then just never stopped. Terracotta & Twine was created very soon after - partly as a way to justify how much macrame cord I was buying, but mostly because I wanted to help other people get started with macrame and fill everyone's homes with lovely, soft, textile artwork.


When I'm not busy tying macrame knots, I can usually be found reading a romance novel, watching Schitt's Creek for the 45734875th time, playing ukulele, searching for second hand knitwear or camping in my 30 year old caravan.
