In 2000, I have settled in Alentejo and started a research/creation project. "Oficina do Feltro" (Felt Workshop) aims to foster the crossing of handmade and traditional practices with contemporary research and artistic creation, namely from the recovery of handmade textile, rehabilitating the Alentejo wool through comunity work. In this house arts and crafts of Alentejo are born and reborn. Artists in residence share inhabitants life. Bonds are created. As my friend Regina Guimaraes (writer, poetess, theatre and film writer) once wrote about this place: "I like the house's saints and the street miracles". I've written it on my front wall.
