Experience the scents and sounds of wood making

60 minutes Max 6 peopleFree

If you are interested in understanding more about the art of making antique-styled wooden furniture, you will enjoy meeting master artisan Firmino Canhoto, as well as his daughter Carla and son João at their workshop Moveis d’Arte Canhoto. As visitors are shown around, soaking in the scents and sounds of wood work, they will see and talk about the pieces being worked on at that moment, be it a construction or restoration with marquetry or inlay. This non-rigid format ensures a unique experience. The visit ends in an exhibition space where examples of completed furniture inspired by Portuguese century-old styles can be admired for their intricacy and beauty.
