Are you longing for a meditative moment of unique crafts and art among the pure nature in a warm sunny countryside while listening to the diverse sounds of nature? Then our cork workshop in Portugal is the best match for you!
Cork oak tree “Cortiça” is one of the most characteristic secrets of Portugal. It is growing in the southern part of the country and its bark can be used to produce home-ware, clothing, decorations and whatever else your imagination can come up with.
The bark of the Cork oak can be harvested every 9-12 years and instead of being left in the ground it can be effectively utilised.
On our cork workshop in Portugal visitors are invited to walk around the cork oak forest to see and learn about this original tree. This is followed by a visit to a local fabric/shop where one could see possibilities of cork material, modified into handbags, jewelry, and other items and get inspired!
We strongly believe into beneficial effects of craftsmanship on one’s mind, nervous system and overall state, especially when out in nature, away from worries and excessive planning. Our cork workshop in Portugal is a wonderful add-on to your relaxing time and therapeutic adventure in our magical country!
Workshop Duration 2.5 hr
Location: Southern Portugal
