Echo Ecuela Taller
| Textil Art|
Echo is a school - workshop focused on the development of textile art and craft techniques. At Echo we have a coMaking space where creative people design and carry out their own projects independently or with the help of Mariadela Araujo, a textile teacher. In the workshop you can work on techniques such as high smooth tapestry, tufting gun, embroidery, punch needle, crochet, macramé and others. In addition, we have courses and workshops to specialize or try different techniques.
The space is directed by Julia Cabeza, founder and director of Echo Escuela Taller. Julia studied cinema, art direction and ephemeral construction at ESCAC. Her passion for the craft arts led her to create Echo, from where she combines direction and management with the continuous exploration of textile craft techniques and their application in modern life.
Mariadela Araujo is in charge of teaching at Echo, where she has her own experimental workshop-laboratory. Mariadela is a designer, textile artist and florist, born in Caracas. She is currently represented by Rademakers Gallery in Amsterdam, Trobat Gallery in Mallorca and Volante Studio in Caracas. Mariadela investigates the interplay between color, materials, and traditional craft techniques, such as weaving on a high warp loom, embroidery, textile assembly, and floral design.
Echo is located in a 300m2 space shared with other artists in an old factory in the Clot neighbourhood, near the Sagrada Familia. The school space consists of 150m2 divided into 2 floors with work tables reserved for residents. The place has a high ceiling and lots of natural light.
