Oaxaca es famosa por sus tradiciones de alfarería, pero muchas de ellas raras se descuidan, incluso se olvidan. En el transcurso de un día completo, visitaremos a una familia de tres generaciones de alfareros que participan activamente en el recuerdo colectivo de su oficio. Exploraremos el proceso de convertir la arcilla en cerámica, cada paso se lleva a cabo y se enseña juntos. Además, nos ensuciaremos las manos aprendiendo la alquimia viva de la tierra y el fuego, escuchando a los narradores maestros y descubriendo las viejas relaciones entre el fuego que cocina nuestra cerámica que cocina nuestra comida.
Incluye:
un taller práctico de un día sobre el proceso de fabricación de cerámica de Oaxaca, desde las materias primas hasta el producto terminado
una demostración y degustación de chocolate metate-made
una comida deliciosa, orgánica y casera,
un regalo de despedida para nuestros invitados de nuestros anfitriones, seleccionado especialmente para esta sesión
