What you'll do

We will explain the origin of this trade and the great tradition that it has in Mijas. We will show you how different pieces are made and then we will take action by making a small table basket. Everything is done 100% by hand using specific needles for spartery (grass) and hemp thread. The last step will be to decorate it.

Learn more about José  Y Sonia

José Y Sonia

I am Sonia, co-founder of the Puerta-Ágora School-Craft Workshop. In this cooperative of artisans he is also as Professor José, with more than 30 years of experience in the world of ceramics and painting in tile murals. Craftsmanship is my passion and I have the great luck of being able to practice two trades. I belong to the third generation of women dressmakers / tailor of Euskadi and crafts run through my veins. Teaching, as an archeologist I am, is my second weakness and in this school-workshop I can unify both worlds. I was also fortunate to have one of the last remaining teachers in the craft department, being able to learn the most from him. The first objective of this knowledge is to be able to transmit and disseminate it as much as possible so that it is not lost.
