What you'll do
GETTING THERE: We will pick you up at the ferry station in Cacilhas and take you for a relaxed walk on the riverside to explore the street art on Cais to Ginjal, before getting to the panoramic elevator at Boca do Vento. There, you can enjoy bird-eye views of Lisbon. Before heading to the NAVE, we will stop shortly at Casa da Cerca contemporary art centre. LET'S START: After welcoming you with a fresh beverage and a slice of home-made cake, we will start our workshop: Ceramic Mosaic Sardine Workshop. Chira, our PhD Graduate at the Faculdade de Belas-Artes of Lisbon, is a local ceramic artist and will guide you teach you the techniques and the details to make your own creation. Using bits & bites of colorful tiles you will make your unique Portuguese sardine souvenir using the millennial art of the mosaic.
I am the co-founder of the NAVE - Núcleo de Artes, Vivências e Expressões, in Almada, Lisbon South Bay. After living in Asia and South America for over ten years, I decided to go back to Europe and open a cultural centre where I could share with others the arts and experiences that I got to know in my travels. After working in the international event and creative industry for a decade, I decided to use my skills to creative meaningful experiences for my community. As passionate traveller, I know that the best way to get to know a culture is through its people. The workshops that we design aim to pass knowledge through practical experience from locals to visitors. The NAVE counts on a great team of professional designers, photographers, plastic art artists, painters, musicians, composers, language teachers, dancers, choreographers, actor
We will welcome you with some refreshments and a slice of home-made cake
We will provide all the materials and instruments needed to carry out the workshops.
