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.

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)…
