Spend Time Making on Fogo Island

Fogo Islanders have become masters of making things by hand, recycling, and devising local solutions to all manner of challenges. Meet with local artisans and makers to learn the art of handcrafting.

Throughout the seven seasons on Fogo Island, guests staying at the Inn have the singular opportunity to familiarize themselves with the rich tradition of making that has engrossed and occupied generations of Fogo Islanders. Take advantage of a range of workshops from half-day orientations to five-day immersive courses, all guided by a Skilled Maker. Participants will gain confidence using tools and finish with functional objects.

In partnership with our sister social business, The Woodshop on Fogo Island, this experience includes all meals, planned workshops, and full use of the Inn's facilities. Family suites available. More immersive courses are available by inquiry.
