After pickup from your accommodation, board a classic Volkswagen T2 for your trip through the Algarve to the workshop, with the driver acting as your guide to fascinating history and local knowledge.

Before starting the group activity take the chance to explore the beautiful Fontes de Alte location nearby to the workshop set in the heart of nature. Then begin the handicraft workshop with the help of an expert craftsman. Choose between the two craft options: making a cane instrument or tile painting.  

Take part in the cane (bamboo) workshop to make a toy that doubles as a musical instrument, known as a cartaxinho. This will be a really nice souvenir from the Algarve, created by you. In the tile painting workshop, learn how to paint a traditional Portuguese tile. If you like the product of your creativity, the tile will be sent to you with an extra cost for postage and packing.
