Where you'll be

Located on the Rua Santa Justa in Baixa, our third floor atelier is just seconds from the Elevator Santa Justa and offers a space of quietude from the bustling street below. Originally in an apartment, the atelier boasts all of its original features including its traditional Azulejos tiles. The building, constructed soon after the 1755 earthquake, is a beautiful example of the city's renovation under Marques de Pombal.

This experience is a really fun way to make something unique to home from Lisbon. It felt very accessible with Tom helping every step of the way but definitely felt very hands on. Tom also gave some great recommendations for my time in Lisbon outside of the typical tourist places.

I loved getting to learn about printmaking with Thomas! As someone who is obsessed with totes design to my own tote was a really cool experience and Thomas was great at showing us tips and tricks to get the best result while reminding us that it didn’t have to be perfect! I would love to return and make another tote on my next visit to Lisbon.
