We are delighted to inform that we will be participating in the National Handicrafts exhibition at Vila do Conde. This year the exhibition offers a journey through the tradition of "Artisans of sounds", a theme that is close to Master Firmino's heart (who plays 16 musical instruments, mostly made by himself) and that serves as inspiration for many of his projects.
Our workshop will present all the luxury, art, knowledge and mastery craftsmanship in marquetry along with the strumming of the landmark of the city, bobbine lace.

This is also an opportunity for Atelier Móveis d'Arte Canhoto to thank the warm welcome from the North to our workshop in the previous edition of the fair.

The oldest and largest National Handicrafts Fair, with an average of 400 thousand visitors, the Portuguese traditional arts intersect with the sounds of the instruments and the sounds of wood in its transformation into works of art, where our workshop will be building live the Indo Portuguese counter NAGINIS nr. 2.
