About the artist:

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 art.

Maria was so inspiring and so open about her work. A lovely person and a patient instructor. I would encourage anyone with a create bone to take her class. What a rare privilege to have a one on one work shop with a master

Wonderful Atelier

A unique and accessible experience for everyone who is feeling creative or who prefers an adventure in the midst of textile art.
Maria welcomes us in a beautiful atelier, situated in a place where nature surrounds, and takes us through her passion and dedication to art. It is an opportunity to receive from her the knowledge she has in textile context and to learn more about the arts and crafts of Portugal.
It is unforgettable and transformative what this creative experience gives us.
Thank you!

Had a great workshop with Maria in her studio! She is passionate about her work and so generous when it comes to share her knowledge or any information. I was looking forward to meet her, since I started to learn basketry from Canada during the pandemic and mostly had online courses with various teachers. It feels great to be able to meet artists in person and share those memorable moments where one can teach others how to evolve in their practice. Thank you Maria ---» hope to see you in Québec some day! :-)

unique experience!

Memorable moment, in a very inspiring atelier and with Maria sharing what she does best: working the creative process and working with yarn, through this technique. I am hooked, yes!, and very happy to have met her.
