Amy arrived in Vale de Gatos with a huge desire, made of determination, to fulfil an old wish: to learn to weave.

Coming from Cornwall, in England, from a small village by the sea – which accounts for her passion for surfing – to the Portuguese ocean on the coast of Alentejo, she came to us for a day workshop on weaving, which she immediately extended to the following day. Two intense days, rich in concentration in the peaceful environment of our weaving studio, in an exchange of knowledge and ideas, sensibilities, interests and closeness uncovered around yarns, patchwork, sewing, hand-making – weaving-bound.

Upon leaving, she took the seed with her together with the promise of a return.
