My name is Marion. I am an artisan and I weave on different weaving looms since a long time. During this workshop, every one will discover and realize his own modern weaving, even without any experience ! My pleasure is to join my technique with the portuguese one, using local materials (wools, cotton, trapilho) to make modern weaving with an Algarve touch ! with a small volume and weight, it will find his place even in a small suitcase ! After 3 hours, every one will leave with a new and fun portuguese experience ! Even if I don't speak english well, Alain is here to assist me so no worry ;)
Coffee/tea break with sweets and water
All is included in the price : weaving, wool, trapilho...

Where you'll be
My "atelier" is located at the first floor of our familial home, with a very pleasant view on the exotic and quiet garden. The size of the atelier allows each participant to get a confortable work space. The weaving looms are made of wood and hand made by myself with local and natural furnitures. I will accompany you during every step of the creation.
