Project description

Estelle Gassmann’s interest in seaweed, in all of its forms and features, goes back to March 2017. While visiting the Museu Marítimo de Ilhavo in Portugal, she discovered the work of Américo Teles (1893-1983), the founder of the museum and a passionate algologist. There she bought the book Guia Prático de Preparação de Algas Marinas, a practical guide to preparing seaweed, published by his granddaughter Sónia Teles.

Estelle Gassmann decides to learn how to prepare algae and attends a workshop in March 2018 with Sónia Teles, an architect who lives in Porto and manages her grandfather’s estate.
