It is always great, when good projects find a way to continue, and I am delighted that this is the case for Duduá. At the Barcelona forefront of all things crafty since 2006, Duduá have just opened a new space in Gràcia, on Carrer Diluvi 5, dedicated to workshops in knitting, crochet, sewing, embroidery, etc. etc. Here’s what it looks like…
A simple glass shop front with a delicately painted window (they are going to have different artists paint it every month) offers a view of a selection of yarns (which they sell to participants of their workshops)…
… as well as of the comfy, cosy workshop space, which is dominated by a large table and a set of cute, mismatched, vintage chairs.
Shelves with a selection of fab crafting books and magazines from around the globe and pretty pieces from previous projects grace the walls on either side of the table, as well as the interior of the beautiful display cabinet they found in their new ‘home’ and lovingly restored.
A cute ‘kitchen nook’ complete with vintage kitchen cabinets, a fridge and a water cooker promise cups of tea to accompany the various classes, the first of which starts today with an embroidery workshop,using the ‘magic needle’. For the full program, please check Duduá’s blog here.
All materials are provided at each workshop, and if you’re all aglow with what you’ve made and want to continue crafting, you can buy more materials at Duduá.
Duduá will only be open during workshop hours, so if you want to pop round, do make sure to check if they’re open first.
The opening event that the lovely Duduá ladies Nuria and Alicia organised last Monday was great fun, with cava, yummie handmade donuts and a bingo in which you could win yarns or a workshop of your choice. My friend Chema won these fabric yarns (below) and as he can’t knit or crochet to save his life, he gave them to me – lucky girl that I am!
For more info and updates on workshops, etc., please check the Duduá blog here and the Facebook page here (both in Spanish, so turn on your browser’s translator feature). And if you’re in town and have an afternoon to spare, make sure to join a workshop. You’re bound to have a great time and learn lots!
