After I fell in love with some felt handcrafted baby shoes, I began participating in several workshops of handmade felt, 15 years ago.

From there I found the needlefelting technique, but there was a lack of teachers in portugal and online tutorials. So I began a process of self learning from practice... after many tries and mistakes and sucesses, I learned how to get by.

I've been tutoring handmade felting for 12 years, both needlefelting and wet felting, being the first needlefelting teacher in portugal.

Traveled the country from North to South teaching how to make Angels, Fairies, Dwarves, Animals, Nativities, woolen boards, Shoes, Handbags, Hats and many other accessories (wet felting) all made out of magical wool.
