About the Folk Arts Tour

Learn about the great folk art masters of the Ocotlan Valley on this visually stunning tour. Pottery, weaving, embroidery, woodcarving, and artistic heritage are the focus of the day.

Our journey takes us into the Ocotlan valley to visit the workshops of artisans who are at once traditional and innovative. We see fine back-strap weavers and black clay sculpture work, meet a golden-hearted potter who is blind and smiles through every pore in his body, and visit a highly recognized wood carver.

All of the artisans we visit are recognized as great masters in the amazing Great Masters of Mexican Folk Art books by the Banamex Foundation, and each of them is filled with an inspiration that shines in their work.
