Hello and welcome to online home!
I’m Constança and I like to make things with my hands. Actually, I don’t just “like” to make things: I’m passionate about it. Addicted. Obsessed. And I’m on a mission to show you that you can make things too. Everyone is creative. Everyone is capable!
I make things and so can you.
I’m happiest when I’m making. Sewing everything under the sun, baking our daily bred and way too many cakes and biscuits, trying to grow things in our garden, foraging and preserving, playing with flowers, printing fabric, upcycling my latest second-hand finds… these are the things that truly bring me joy and fulfilment. They make me independent and they empower me. Making things by hand is truly powerful stuff!
I was born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal, spent an unforgettable semester in Paris as a Law exchange student and lived in a brick cottage in rural England for three amazing years. Currently I’m based in New Zealand’s North Island, where I’m making a home in a 100-year-old weatherboard villa. I’m the mother of two little boys: Rodrigo was born in England and Pedro in New Zealand.
In 2014 I had my first book published. The book is called “Mãos à Obra!
” and it’s all about hand-making your way through the four seasons of the year
