Welcome to my website "Macramé with Vladimir".
I am Vladimir Radulović from Čačak, retired designer.
On this website, I'll try to portray to you the entire beauty and significance of Macramé, that ancient skill of expression, which was my hoby for many years. Through this website, I'll introduce you to the basic and auxiliary knots of this technique, and those of you that are already familiar with this will see many works that might serve as inspiration for their future projects.
The knots used in Macramé are very simple and can be learned easily. You just needs patience and begin from the simple patterns to understand the method of work. During the work, you need to combine and experiment to come up with best solutions, which you should definitely make note of.
Today, many artists of fine and applied arts have accepted Macramé as a form of expression, creating their works with knots, combining them with other materials and techniques.
Creative workshop at the National Museum in Čačak, June 2017.
The book „Macramé – the art of tying knots“ is done as a manual for everyone interested in Macramé. It contains over 120 drawings and 150 photographs in color. For the beginners, everything that’s needed was given to successfully learn Macramé. The detailed instructions were given for making knots, Cavandoli bindings, strings and cords, decorative beginnings, circled bindings, clothing items, and all other interpretations that are needed for successful realization of the projects. For those that know Macramé, the works in this book could serve as inspiration for future creative activities.
The book gives a small overview of the knots and interlaces of the monasteries of the Moravian school, which gave its full contribution in the development of decorative knots and interlacing with its stone plastic.
