Full description
After being picked up from your hotel in Lagos, you’ll enjoy a comfortable drive in a Volkswagen T2 and begin your 2-3 hour handicraft adventure, discovering a unique side to the Algarve along the way.

The drive to your destination will be filled with picturesque scenery and loads of fascinating details about the region’s history and culture. You’ll then arrive at a beautiful location in the heart of nature, the Barão de São João National Forest, where your exciting group activity will begin.

Here you’ll start your handicraft workshop with the guidance of an expert craftsman. In the Cane Workshop, you’ll learn how to craft a toy that doubles as a musical instrument called ‘Cartaxinho’. At the end of this option, you’ll have a fantastic Algarve souvenir, made by you. Alternatively, in the Tile Painting Workshop, you’ll learn how to paint a traditional Portuguese tile which you’ll hold onto as your very own self-made memento of an unforgettable experience.
