In Mamoiada, in the heart of Sardinia, before electricity arrived and with it the light in the houses, it was the women who created the candles and took care of the lighting in the houses. The arrival of electricity has lightened the women of this work that has become a real tradition, but to date there are very few who still know it and keep it alive. Elisa is one of these and will welcome you in her workshop where you will take part in a workshop for the creation of small works of art often inspired by Sardinian craftsmanship, its thousand colors and the scents of the island. A pleasant and fun experience for the whole family, of which you will always have the memory thanks to the candle that you will have as a souvenir and that you yourself will create. Book now!
