CRAFT AND WELLNESS WORKSHOPS

 

 

At Casa Mãe, we are big believers in the benefits of slow living, of taking some time just for you to explore, to do, to make things differently – just another perspective.  So of course we want to share that vision with our guests!

 

Our selection of workshops that reflect our collaborations and ethos, from cooking with our chefs, selecting produce at our farm, picking flowers and turning them into beautiful interior highlights, to moulding ceramics and taming the potter’s wheel… And of course some curated wellness workshops with our local partners, yoga, meditation, climbing, surf etc

A lot to explore and enjoy!

 

Some workshops are available all year long with private sessions available, others request a minimum number of participants.

 

Don't hesitate to contact us for more information !
