We organise workshops raising awareness of traditional arts and their new uses, allowing people to try them out, and held in the workspaces of the craftspeople or in other spaces. These workshops can be half-day (3 hours) or full-day (6 hours). They are designed for groups of adults, for groups of children, or for mixed groups (families). The workshops focus on one of the following themes: Clay, Palm Weaving, Linen, Traditional Floor Tiles, Cane, Wood and plant materials and Wool.
WORKSHOPS WITH ALGARVE NATIVE PLANTS
Palm, cane and other aquatic plants has been exploited ever since by shepherds, farmers, builders, craftsmen and children, to make objects to work, leisure and entertain. With these native plants were created ancestral techiques such as “empreita” and amazing objects that are an important part of the rich cultural heritage of the region.
Experience the place and this unique culture, in a hands on workshop, and also choose and create your own object to take and remember.
Choose 1 object from those:
- Paper kite (good choice for families)
