Where you'll be

We will do the workshop in our charming penthouse, in the Gràcia neighborhood, We have a pleasant terrace with extraordinary views of the Tibidabo mountain, if the weather is good there we do the workshop there, it is a very quiet and pleasant terrace. In the middle of the city , a small lung of oxygen and silence without equal. If time does not accompany we will carry out the activity inside the house, also a very special place and of great personality.

Great experience! Tona knows a lot about the culture of working with African fabric and about crafting the material. We made a beautiful pair of shoes together. She's very patient and helpful.
