By far the most email requests I have received over the years is for tutorials that teach how to wrap stones in knotting.
Until recently there weren’t any, but not anymore! I’m going to list them all here right now. If I forget any, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the information. There are workshops, one on one teaching, video tutorials and books. I’ll list them according to categories.
One on One Teaching
Percy Palomino Tomayquispe teaches via Skype in group classes and one on one mentoring/teaching. It’s a great way to learn. Contact him here via his Facebook page to get started: https://www.facebook.com/InspirarteMacrame
Coming soon is a 5 part Video Tutorial Series showing how to secure stones in knotting by Coco Paniora Salinas. You can sign up to be notified via email when the tutorials are ready for purchase. Word is that there will be more tutorials coming after that to show advanced knotting techniques.
