Online Workshop
"Wood Workart"

Fernando Nunes

Artist / Craftsman: Fernando Nunes
County: Sertã

In this online workshop conducted by Fernando Nunes you may learn how to build a piece of furniture from a single tree root.

Fernando Nunes is well known for his wood and cooperage craftworks. For him to work with wood is a passion!

Fernando Nunes was born in the village of Amioso, county of Sertã, where as a child he found his joy to work with wood, fascinated by the smell of pinewood. The evenings in his workshop are easy to enjoy. The unique form of a root or a log inspires each work. With pieces of wood, that had no use for others, Fernando Nunes creates tables, chairs, cellars and other elements. His works are exposed in the NUMOAS - Núcleo Museológico e Oficina de Artesanato da Sertã, located in the Parque da Carvalha in Sertã.
