Learn to create unique textile pieces in a contemporary style
The secret of the success of the pieces by Belén Senra - textile artist specialized in macramé and founder of Ranran Design - is that she uses traditional techniques to make decorative pieces with contemporary style. His macrame tapestries hang and fill with character exclusive and international spaces such as the Hotel Nobu, by Robert de Niro; the Aguas de Ibiza spa or the Spanish LA restaurant in Los Angeles (California).
In this course, Belén will teach you how to design and create your own macramé tapestries, exploring different styles, materials, textures and colors. You will learn to make different types of knots, creating patterns that you can apply in decorative projects, for utilitarian use or even applied to furniture.
What's included in this course?
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.
What is this course project?
You will design and create a macramé tapestry with your own style based on visual references selected by you.
Who is it aimed at?
To designers, interior designers and anyone who wants to explore new ways to decorate spaces and explore new forms of creation.
No prior knowledge of any kind is necessary. With respect to the materials, you will need a stick to hang your tapestry, hooks, scissors, a meter, strings and fabrics.
