Teranyina – where warp and weft meet

Barcelona textile weaving and felting Teranyina

Black and white beauties

Ever wondered where warp and weft meet in Barcelona? I have the answer for you: it is at Teranyina, on Carrer Notariat 10.

In a wonderful space that combines workshop and sale areas, Teranyina have been teaching and selling all about textile weave and felting for 25 years, and I hope they will continue to do so for much longer.

Warp wonders

Weaving is not all that is done at Teranyina though, for felting and a technique called nuno are also taught and put into practice here.

Classes are taught upstairs by the lovely Teresa Rosa Aguayo, while downstairs production is underway. Scarves, tapestries, felt items… you name it, at Teranyina they are able to make it from weft and warp and some woollen, cotton, silk or linen threads, with patience and many trips of the shuttles from one side of the loom to the other.

Woven portraits

The resulting marvels are available for sale, and some are exhibited on the walls of the shop area in pretty frames. How delightful are these woven portraits?!

Naturally, inspirational material is also made available, both to shop customers and workshop pupils. Teranyina is a wonderful living homage to age old techniques and craft traditions, and Barcelona is all the richer for it.

    Hello Lisette,
    I am so happy and amazed to read your post today :)
    I was searching for weave/textile studios to visit on my trip to Barcelona in July and just discovered Teranyina yesterday, it’s so funny you blogged about it today!

      Hi Louise, glad you enjoyed my post! Funny coincidence, right? Where are you staying during your July visit, if I may ask?

        We are staying at hostal Fernando (I previously contacted you as I would love to stay at the Cute Suite but there are three of us) cannot wait!

        Yes, I remember, Louise! Would you let me know your findings about Hostal Fernando please? It’s always good to have reliable addresses to hand… Thanks!
