In this workshop, you’ll be able to cross stitch your own design/pattern into a ready handmade ceramic tile (measuring 10x10cm approx). After settling in and getting familiar, we’ll start with me introducing to you all the components needed to complete this workshop. Lots of options for colours and patterns (inspired by the traditional Portuguese Azulejo tiles) will be provided to help get you started. l'll guide you through the basics of how cross stitch embroidery works. You’ll go on to complete your unique wall hanging, finishing the tile with a natural cotton cord for hanging and accompanied with a gift box if you wish to gift it to someone special. This is a fantastic workshop for individuals, mother/daughter time or groups of friends (birthday/hen occasions are a great excuse) looking to share a unique, relaxing experience.
I have a strong love for creating beautiful objects but also love to help inspire others. Thanks to my mother who introduced me to embroidered crafts from a very young age. This passion did not stop whilst pursuing a professional career in fashion, jewellery and product design. Combining my inspiration and love for Portuguese tiles with handcraft, my workshop enables guests to create a beautiful tiled wall hanging to take home. I've been hosting workshops for the past few years and I believe everyone has a creative soul inside.

We will conduct our workshop at my home studio in Cacilhas on the 9th floor with a balcony that looks out to the Rio Tejo bay. With lots of light and calmness, this environment is ideal if you want to get away from the crowds and tourists. It's relaxing, peaceful and you will definitely feel zen whilst crafting.
最多可供5位年滿7歲的旅人參加。 No experience is needed. Guests should be comfortable sitting and woking with small components using their hands for a period of time.
