Imaginary and Painting Workshops

The records of the production of religious images in São Mamede do Coronado, Trofa county, date back to the XIX century. However, it was in 1920, at the time when the workshop of José Ferreira Thedim (grandson) performed the image of the Virgin to the Sanctuary of Fátima, that the saint makers gained reputation.

As consequence, there was a significant increase in orders, bringing economic life into activity and the proliferation of wood carving and painting workshops, all over São Mamede do Coronado. Directed by renowned masters, some of these workshops developed the concept of school-workshop, in order to ensure the handcrafted production and the transmission of know-how, as well as skilled labor. These saint makers are excellent performers of the anatomical proportions, being not restricted to religious sculpture, but also performing work for academic sculptors.
