To visit

Pássaro de Seda Atelier


Exploring a region goes beyond visiting its main attractions; it involves immersing ourselves in the local culture and actively participating in activities that allow us to delve into traditions and local knowledge.

That’s precisely the experience you can enjoy when you visit “Pássaro de Seda Atelier”, the workshop of Maria João Cravo, a renowned artisan in the Aveiro region who works with ceramics, infusing life and emotion into her pieces. In this space, you’ll learn more about Maria João’s creative process, her techniques, and the materials she uses. However, the highlight… the highlight will be when you get to create your own piece.

Join the workshops at “Pássaro de Seda Atelier” (by appointment), and that’s when you’ll reach the pinnacle of your experience. Guided by Maria João, you’ll have a moment that combines creativity, relaxation, and the joy of learning and overcoming challenges. It will be a mix of emotions that you’ll never forget.

And what could be even better? When you return home, besides having plenty of stories to share with your friends and family, you’ll have the opportunity to decorate your home with a new piece… this time, a piece you made yourself!
