Creative Chair Making in Portugal

Creative Chair Making in Portugal


6 days in the beautiful and historic artist village of Cerdeira in Portugal.  Immerse yourself in the creative process of green woodworking.  Contact me for further details of details and how to book.  Do NOT book through this website!

ARTIST WEEK includes 25 hours of instruction and guided work. You will also have free access to the studios to keep working if you so desire. Portuguese and English are spoken on the course.

The price of ARTIST WEEK includes 6 nights of accommodation in Cerdeira, all breakfasts, 5 buffet lunches and a daily snack with fruit, coffee and tea. The welcome dinner and the dinner in Coimbra, as well as the Fado concert, are also included.

It also includes:

– A guided walk in the hills to the neighbouring village of Candal. This was the path that the village children would once have taken to school. In Candal, next to a small pool, we will cool down and try a few regional delicacies as part of our picnic.

– A study visit to the historical part of Coimbra, rich in architectural and cultural points of interest, classified as World Heritage by UNESCO in 2013. We will walk through the narrow streets from the University to the lower part of the city, and sit on the terrace of the historic Cafe Santa Crux, enjoying our coffee and watching the world go by. We will visit the Machado and Castro museums, and then enjoy a delicious dinner in one of the city's historical taverns. At the end of the day we will attend a Fado concert. Fado was also classified as Intangible World Heritage in 2011, and hearing Fado is a great way of finding out more about Portugal.

The groups are always small!

The basic materials for the course are also included. However, if you already have your preferred products or brands, feel free to bring them with you.
