To achieve greater artistic expressiveness through strings and fabrics, it is essential to explore and play with the composition, and with its results. The well-known textile artist Belen Senra —who has already exhibited her work in New York, Miami, Madrid or Los Angeles— reveals that you don't have to settle for basic shapes, but you also have to experiment with different supports and techniques.

In addition to being an opportunity to disconnect from daily stress, in this course you will be able to reconnect with an old art that will provide you with a wide repertoire of techniques and the compilation of a large library of references for infinite projects and applications: tapestries, accessories, fashion, architecture or product.

If you want to deepen the art of macramé, you can expand your knowledge with other courses by Belén Senra: Introduction to macramé: creation of a decorative tapestry and Design of macramé accessories .
