Born in Coimbra (Portugal’s former capital!) in 1970, textile artist Maria Pratas felt that her degree in Visual Education, focused mostly on the two-dimensionality of what is observed, narrowed her need to work on a three-dimensional scale. She always had a curiosity for raw materials and the way they can be transformed. So she dived deeper into the world of textiles and basketry.
Now she wants to share her profound knowledge with you during her ✨Textile Basketry Workshops✨.
You learn a coil basket weaving technique where you gonna sew by hand, using natural textile fibres and wool. While you’re creating your unique textile basketry piece of art, Maria serves you typical appetizers from the region such as "tiborna", dried figs and yummy drinks. 🥰
