If you are already in Azores, or just organizing your trip, you will find that the most typical souvenirs of Portugal are roosters, sardines, and swallows—all made of clay and painted by hand. So, why not spend time with me in my studio, creating your own souvenir? I will tell you a bit more about the origin of these iconic objects, and together we will create a unique gift for you to take home. We will create a typical souvenir, but with a totally new approach. I will offer different options for you to choose from, and I'll help you on the way to have a relaxing, fun, artistic time. In this experience, we will have time to paint one of the objects, so choose which one you prefer. You'll start with a totally blank ceramic piece, and all the painting is done by hand in a traditional style—but the designs are diverse, ranging from really easy to a more professional level. We will adapt to your needs and skills.

I'm a student of fine arts from Lisboa that decided to change life and moved to Azores, São Miguel island. I used to host this experience in Lisbon so at the moment all my reviews are from there. Be the first to join me here :) I love painting and everything about art, from handmade art crafts to abstract art, from repurposing unwanted items to designing new objects of art—that's my world.
Materials and supplies I'll provide all the art materials and supplies you need to create your gift.
This will take place in my studio and also my home. I live in a small rural village called Achadinha, close to Vila do Nordeste. It’s a quiet area with an amazing view :)
