My weaving studio is located in the historic centre of Odemira, close to the Atlantic Ocean, in Portugal and exists since 2000
Lab O is located in my weaving studio since 2017
The project started when Marta Pokojowczyk came to Odemira in the ‘Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs’ programme. We started to weave canvases, others than in plain weave.
All textiles are woven on this AVL Compu Dobby loom connected to a Mac Plus device.
The weaving drafts are generated on Weavelt, a handwaving design software for Mac Os
