Oaxaca is famous for its traditional indigenous cultures and the folk art born of them. Our tours are an excellent introduction to the artisans of the Central Valleys, from potters and blacksmiths, to weavers and basket makers. We’ll take you into Oaxaca’s three distinct districts; Etla, Ocotlan and Tlacolula, as well as neighborhoods in the colonial city itself.
We will explore villages, visit artisans’ workshops and get a taste of the diversity of arts that thrive throughout Oaxaca. We’ll meet both recognized masters like Jacobo Angeles and the Aguilar sisters, as well as less known craftsmen who create fine baskets, delicate angels from sheets of tin, or nativity scenes from re-cycled trash.
