Manodesanta a crochet art exhibit at Miscelanea, Barcelona

Manodesanta @ Miscelanea

Last Sunday, while out on a stroll, I popped in to Miscelanea and found a delightful exhibit. Messages in crochet by Marial Soy, showcasing technique, irony and things to say.

I loved seeing such and old school craft form in a completely new guise, and just had to share it with you.

Old school, new art

The messages on each piece made me chuckle, and some pieces I thought were really cool. But more than anything, I was delighted to see the humble crochet taking centre stage in one of Barcelona’s hip and happening art galleries.

Fly Return

If you’re in town, then head over to Miscelanea on the double, for it is on until this Sunday. If you’re not, too bad! Maybe there is something along these lines happening where you are? If so, please let me know – I’ll happily share it with all of you, my dear blog friends.

Miscelanea is on Carrer de la Guardia 10, 08001 Barcelona. I’m going to keep an eye out for more work by Marial Soy, for I really like the stuff she creates. Check out her website to see what I mean…

An email exchange followed and finally, a few weeks ago, I went to Fina’s studio to meet her in person (what a delight!) and take the photos I’ll be sharing with you in this post.

Carrer Diluvi 5

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…

Yarns on display

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)…
