Have you ever heard about “Empreita de palma“? 
It’s a traditional basket weaving technique from the Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost region.
During her workshop, artist Ysaline teaches you the different steps of ‘empreita de palma’, from braiding the palm leaves to sewing them into a small basket so you can go home with your own customized piece!
Ysaline picks the palm leaves locally and dries them on her roof for a month. She wants to share her knowledge that for centuries has been passed from generation to generation.
For her 4-hour workshops Ysaline invites 1-4 guests on her terrace at her home which lies in a quiet valley just outside of Aljezur town. She provides you with some regional delicacies such as almonds, dried figs, 'pasteis' and seasonal fruit. As for drinks she serves infused water, tea, coffee.

Location: On Ysaline's terrace (partly covered), in a quiet valley just outside of Aljezur town.
