Going The Dodo Way Goes Live!

Sep 26, 2018


It’s been such a long time since I last taught a live workshop. I’m a teacher at heart, so interacting directly with my students and having that immediate feedback you get at a live event is something I absolutely love!

I’ll never forget the reaction of a young girl who attended one of my courses on hats and had never touched wet felting before. I was a bit worried that it could become difficult for her, since felting hats can be challenging. Getting the right thickness all over the piece and shaping a more sophisticated form can be tough, especially for someone who has never tried felting. But she told me she was used to trying new materials and it wouldn’t be a problem for her if she, for any reason, wasn’t able to complete the project. So, I agreed that she’d sign up for the workshop.

If you’ve already made 3D pieces, you know there’s a moment in which you take the resist out of the flat piece and start giving it a...

Have A Felting Workshop Customized For You

Feb 09, 2017

One year ago, I started building a site, created a YouTube channel, and put my imagination to work, to find a way to build a community around the love for felting.

In this process, I learnt a lot myself, and that is leading me to make some changes, because I want my work to be more in tune with what you’re looking for.

And the first change I would like to tell you about is the new possibility of having a workshop organized and customized for you.

How does it work?

Maybe you’d prefer having a private workshop, with a group of friends, instead of coming to one of the scheduled events.

Or maybe you have a shop or gallery, and would like to offer your customers the chance to have a customized felting workshop.

If that’s the case, contact me, and we’ll find a way to do what works for you.

Talk to you soon!


Há um ano atrás, comecei a construir um site, criei um canal no YouTube, e pus a imaginação a trabalhar para encontrar a...

Felting Live In Lisbon

May 12, 2016

As you know, I’m developing video workshops, that you can download from the internet to learn at your own pace.

But the truth is some people do like to learn live and in company, so I’ve been looking locally for a nice place to do exactly that. And I’m happy to say I’ve found it! It’s right in the heart of Lisbon, in a charming atelier, where 8 women artists create the most amazing jewelry, illustrations, paintings, ceramics, and so much more.

Since summer’s nearly here, there aren’t any workshops scheduled for now. But I’m planning one workshop a month for after the summer. Check out the dates here.


Como sabe, tenho estado a criar workshops em vídeo, que podem ser descarregados da internet e lhe permitem aprender ao seu ritmo.

Mas, a verdade é que algumas pessoas preferem aprender ao vivo e em companhia. Por isso, tenho andado à procura de um local simpático em Lisboa para poder dar workshops. E,...
