Pau Marceneiros

PRESENTED ON APR 15, 2016
IN LISBON @ VOL 21

"Sérgio Cunha trabalhou durante 20 anos em pós-produção de vídeo, até ao dia em que um amigo de longa data o provocou para irem estudar marcenaria no Instituto de Artes e Ofícios da Fundação Ricardo Espírito Santo. A partir desse momento, o gosto em fazer trabalhos manuais foi-se consolidando na vontade de abrir uma oficina quando terminassem o curso.
Criaram a Pau Marceneiros há 5 anos numa oficina recolhida junto ao Tejo."
