Location

Cerdeira, Lousã: Portugal

Cerdeira Village Art & Craft created the artistic residences in 2014, in the unique environment of a recovered village of schist houses, surrounded by mountains and streams. These circumstances offer the artist an opportunity to get in touch with nature in a very special way - the village belongs to the people ... and the deer! The location of this residence makes it very original and unique. In this context, these circumstances offer the artist an opportunity to get in touch with nature in a very special way. In 2017 was created the Cerdeira Arts and Crafts School that has as its core mission to be a space for teaching traditional techniques that come out of intemporal lineages, and at the same time a space for creativity and art making aligned with contemporary dialogue.
