The secret to the work of Belén Senra, textile artist specialized in macramé and founder of Ranran Design, is her use of traditional techniques to create decorative pieces with contemporary style. Her macramé wall hangings enrich the atmosphere of exclusive spaces around the world, such as Robert de Niro's Hotel Nobu, the Aguas de Ibiza spa, and the restaurant Spanish LA, in Los Angeles, California.

In this course, Belén teaches you how to design and create your own macramé wall hangings by exploring a range of styles, materials, textures, and colors. Learn to tie different knots and combine them to make patterns you can use in all of your projects, whether for practical purposes or decorative applications.

Begin by getting to know Belén Senra, a self-described craft nomad who spends much of her time traveling the world and steeping herself in ancient techniques to use in her decorative textile projects. Learn a bit about her life, her biggest influences, and where she finds inspiration for her work.

Next, explore different decorative styles and put together a mood board with inspiring ideas for your project.

Take a look at the essential materials you need to create a macramé wall hanging and discover some less conventional ones that you can weave into your pieces.

Once you've decided on the materials and a concept, Belén walks you through the design process, from sketching your idea to taking measurements and incorporating them into your pattern. She also teaches you a variety of macramé knots, the building blocks of your project.

Now it's time to get knotting and bring your design to life! Work through the individual sections of your piece, following your teacher's advice on how to add character to each one, before seeing how to put the finishing touches on your wall hanging.
