Artisans and artists open their doors to the public
A new edition of Tallers Oberts BCN, with more than sixty scheduled activities, will take place from 11 to 13 May.
What do you like best? Sculpture? Drawing? Jewellery? Or maybe you’re drawn more to photography or video creation? Are you, perhaps, interested in the entire field of textiles, printing and clothing? Luckily, you don’t have to choose just one. In fact, you have three whole days, from 11 to 13 May to explore the workshops of artisans working in all of these fields of creation thanks to Tallers Oberts BCN, which is organized by A-FAD (Association of Artists and Artisans of FAD), with the collaboration of Barcelona City Council and the Generalitat of Catalonia. This is an excellent opportunity to get in touch with the people who are working in arts and crafts in Barcelona and you’ll find workshops specialising in all of the disciplines mentioned above, as well as in paper making, painting, book binding, engraving, design, furniture, woodwork, restoration and set design, among others.
Over these three days, many artists and craftspeople will stage activities in the shape of displays, guided tours and workshops, and you’ll have sixty to choose from. Below we detail some of them just to give you an idea of what’s on offer. In a workshop held at Indianes, on Carrer Almogàvers, you’ll be able to create and decorate a bracelet on Friday. At Made by Us in Carrer Bolivia you can learn how to make wooden spinning tops on Sunday morning. Rosa Figuls will be giving a practical demonstration of how to model a sculpture in Carrer de les Calàndries on Saturday afternoon, while in Carrer del Carme, Núria Farré Abejón will be giving live painting demonstrations over the three days of the event. While many of the activities scheduled are free of charge, some charge for admission and some require registration. You can consult the full programme here.
