About your host

I am petite but have a lot of storage :) For 11 years I wrote/edited for international lifestyle media of record. I quit the press in 2011, Communication as a whole in 2018. My interior design activity on own account of 21 years took over. I was born/lived only ever in Lisbon, but have family/had holidays in the Algarve from birth. Faro is now a return point for Interiors projects. One is…

What we’ll do

We will do a contemporary-framed crash-course initiation to Arraiolos - nothing to do with Airbnb's temp shot to the left :) We'll each embroider a small design I adapted out of traditional Arraiolos motifs - learn the technique - with a fresh perspective: Arraiolos as super-handwork that meets all needs of our time [knitting...who?] And as 'the' art that embodies the Portuguese character and…

What else you should know

This is an informal easygoing initiation to Arraiolos. Amateurs on both sides - in Portuguese, 'people who love/do for love'. Challenging. Anti-frustration. Tech-free. Healthy. Useful. Fun! :) Also, if you speak French or Spanish but understand English or Portuguese you're welcome: I get you :)

What I’ll provide

Creative supplies
Individual copies of the design to be crafted for each person to follow, the jute pre-prepped to be embroidered, the wool in the needed colors, the typical round-tip wool needle - all for you to take home as finalized product or work in progress - and love on :)

What to bring

Good relaxed spirit.
Focus and willingness to learn.
Some skill of the hands :)
Mat/cloth/cushion to sit on.
Water.
Your preference of dry snacks for your interval picnic - moist ones may dirty our work :)
What fits the bill of being outside though somewhat shaded - sunblock to windbreaker/sweater.

Where you'll be

We'll meet in Faro's public garden by default. Find a spot for us under the trees. Craft and yap away - birds chirping overhead, wandering trumpeting peacocks/giggling children/the general population/occasional fairs and events going on/about their business in the backdrop.
