Belén considers herself a nomadic craftswoman and spends much of her time traveling and learning old techniques to work textiles in a decorative way; for that reason, you will begin knowing its influences and the elements to which it pays special attention to carry out its work.

You will explore together the different decorative styles and create a moodboard that will help you inspire you when creating your macramé piece.

Then, you will be presented with the essential materials that you must have on hand to create your macrame tapestry and it will show you some more unexpected elements that you can incorporate into your pieces.

Once you have clear materials and ideas for your macramé piece, Belén will explain your design process, discover the correct way to take measurements and show you how to make different knots.

It will be then when you get down to work and begin to shape your macrame tapestry. Belén will give you some advice on how to define the parts of the piece and will reveal some secrets to provide dynamism and complete your tapestries.
