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 last 2-3 hours. They are designed for small groups of adults, for groups of children, or for mixed groups (families). The workshops focus on one of the following themes: Clay, Palm Weaving, Tiles, Cane, Metal and other materials.

WORKSHOPS WITH VEGETAL FIBERS FROM THE ALGARVE

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.
