Hands in clay: Black pottery
Sandra will take us step by step through the process of making black clay pieces, and you will explore your creativity and develop new skills in the company of a Oaxacan family that is dedicated to the production of this clay technique.
San Bartolo is a town renowned for its identifiable clay pieces, since a large part of its population is dedicated to the production of uniquely-regional black clay pottery. Sandra and her family will talk to you about the history of pottery in the village and their relationship with the art form as a family and a community. You might even get to work while one of their rescue-iguanas sits on your shoulder.
