Metal Arts for Recovering Drug Addicts

The Metal Workshop of Alberto Pinheiro was started in 2002 using scrap metal found in the region of Botucatu, Sao Paulo State.  Today, the workshop has been transformed into a therapeutic centre for recovering drug addicts who attend workshops in craft and art, among other activities.  Alberto shares his knowledge by teaching welding techniques, modelling, and reuse of materials as a means of transforming the daily lives of people.
