To unfold creativity



Who has ever said that to think inside the box couldn’t be something special? Hugo Félix and Bárbara Leite create, with their own hands, a start-up in which curiosity and the willing to learn are the main ingredients. Afterwards, you only have to add a (generous) pinch of emotion! Who doesn’t like to be surprised by a box full of things to uncover and the needed instructions to go on an adventure? That’s Workshoped, a project that takes workshops inside boxes to the addresses of the most curious ones. The idea was born of Hugo Félix’s creative mind, who brought Bárbara, a student of International Trade, to the start-up. Together, they prepare, one by one, each box that keeps all the essentials to learn a new activity, every month. They have workshops of scented candles, artisanal chocolates, fabric’s stencil, soaps, calligraphy, to sow herbs, felt bags, but also have a section in its website where it is possible to make suggestions for other workshops. They create a new one every month. Some are replaced, others come in to give place to renewed ideas. The “weirdest” suggestion they ever had was of floral arrangements for funerals. But every idea is valid if feasible.
