Make Time to Make: A creative retreat with Island artisans

Meet with local makers to learn the art of handcrafting.

Fogo Islanders have become masters of making things by hand, recycling, and devising local solutions to all manner of challenges. Throughout the seven seasons on Fogo Island, guests staying at the Inn have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the rich tradition of making that has engrossed generations of Fogo Islanders.

Turn your stay into a creative retreat by participating in a range of workshops guided by Skilled Makers. Learn about woodworking at Fogo Island Workshops – gain confidence using tools and finish with functional wooden objects. Pick up a needle and thread and take advantage of a range of quilting experiences guided by a Master Quilter. Take pottery sessions at Fogo Clay Studio with experienced potter Sarah Fulford. Or, all of the above!

Fogo Island Inn's creative retreats are completely customizable and appropriate for all ages, they range from half-day orientations, to five-day immersive courses. Additional charges apply.
