Fabric commissioned

1

/ / /

I’ve received a commission few weeks ago from a londoner designer. This handwoven fabric is hand painted before weaving. So I’ve dyed the threads with a brush little by little, changing the colours, and then, in the loom, I’ve woven it with a black weft. 100% wool.

Last week Neukölln  opened the door with some of my weaving tapestries hanging from its walls. Neukölln is a second hand furniture shop located in Barcelona, with a very selected collection of antiquities and new stuff. If you’re in Barcelona, don’t hesitate to take a look.

Weaving workshops

 

Last september I started to teach weaving workshops in Duduá.

Since then, one afternoon every month I have been showing the basic tapestry techniques to 8 different people. I’ve explained how to put the warp in a tiny loom, how to plain weave, soumak and something else. We have used different yarns; wool, paper, vegetable, chunky, thinest, mixing colors and textures, we’ve always had a nice time, at least me!

I’m so happy that along this time I’ve met all these people (even it’s hard for me to remember faces and names) and I’m even more happy when some of they send me pictures of their work.

These are some pictures of the first weavings of those people. Works that have been started in the workshop, and finished at home.

(Thank you Alba, Pax, Gioia and Eva)

And this is a picture taken at the last month workshop. You can see the chaos on the table; yarns, looms and tools.

I also want to show you the work of a girl who assisted in a workshop some months ago. She’s Paz Moreno and she’s an artist. She shared with me the last work she has developed… with weaving techniques!

And finally I want to show the beautiful loom that Eva G. has made by her own, watching a youtube video. She also bought more “professional” tools to continue weaving.

Spring has arrived

 

And although I’m an autumn girl, I can feel how nature is changing.

Spring has arrived and like when we look for a better position sitting in a new chair or in bed when we want to sleep a little bit more, she’s settling. Wind, rain, changing temperatures.

Out & inside ourselves, something new is growing strong, the old and weak is disappearing, and the sunshine brings light to every creature and every object.

TUPí

Un tupí és una olla petita d’una sola nansa (potser heu sentit l’expressió “del tupí fumat”) però un tupí és també un formatge pirinenc, greixós i preparat amb aiguardent. Aquest formatge se sol preparar i consumir en el mateix petit recipient de terrisa que he parlat al principi.

El tupí que presento en forma de bossa de cuir, no es de terrissa ni té cap vincle gastronòmic. Però si que està inspirat en la idea de recipient petit i senzill de base circular, útil i resistent.

TUPí

A “tupí” is a small pot with one handle but is also a Pyrenean fat cheese prepared with liqueur. This cheese is usually prepared and eaten in the same small bowl terrises I mentioned at the beginning.

But the tupí that is presented in the shape of leather bag, isn’t made of clay or have any gourmet connection. But it’s inspired by the idea of small and simple container with a rounded bottom, useful and durable.
