    Hi there!

    We are Alexandra & Oli from Romania. We have been nomad artisans for the past years and recently we settled in Central Portugal and we started working on a new project: building a free workshop space for travelling creatives that will be shared with the community around for passing on crafty and sustainable living skills 🌿 If all works out well, in the future we would love to put together a music workshop and a dancing and creative movement space as well.

    We've been living full time in our camper van for the past 2 years, travelling and getting inspired for our creations, and picking up and recycling materials along the way

    We would like to create a free learning space, where people can come and share their skills and knowledge with those around and we'd love to get everything on video so we can pass on the knowledge to the online community

    In time we aim to make this place self sustainable and be able to cover the food necessary for everyone who will make use of the space.

    We're just starting so we need help in setting up the place. The land is not too big and we mostly finished clearing it, and we are now working on starting a bigger garden folowing permaculture principles and learning along the way.

    We are supporting this project with our crafts and Patreon Project so we welcome any help in the areea of online marketing, social media management, content creation and even crafting for those who want to learn some creative skills.
    We work with reclaimed leather, wood and avocado seeds and we are happy to share our experience with the curious ones.

    We are also welcoming artists that wish to collaborate.

    The area is wonderful and filled with other interesting projects concentrating on eco building and permaculture and the nature is beautiful, with river beaches, historical villages and mesmerising walking paths.

    We are happy to go together in little trips around the area to show you around and to explore together.

    We've been volunteering ourselves while travelling with our van and working on our own thing as well, so we know free time and doing things out of willingness and excitement is important. We ask for minimum 4 hours of help per day, from Monday to Friday. Some days may require longer hours but you can take off the next day if you wish. We would love to have good communication and openeness and to make this a wonderful and pleasant experience for everyone involved. We wish people to be happy while staying over and get involved mostly in what they are interested and drawn to.

    We can cook and serve one meal per day together (lunch or dinner depending on circumstances) and there will be basic vegetarian food available in the temporary kitchen areea for you to fix up your other meals.

    Hosting will be in tents untill the common spaces are built. We have one available if you can't bring your own

    Camper vans are most welcome especially in the begining stages before we set up the common spaces and hosting places as it will make the stay more comfortable

    We like to keep things chill so we would kindly request that there will be no excesive alcohol consumption around.

    If you'd like to find out anything else about us or the place & project you're welcome to contact us with any questions

    Hugs and good vibes
    Oli & Alex
