Our first stop on today’s tour will be to the marvelous alebrije workshop of Jacobo & Maria Angeles in San Martin Tilcajete.

They also launched a major reforestation project to plant copal trees, the wood used in the fabrication of alebrijes. Next, we will travel to San Antonino Castillo Velasco to visit Manos Que Ven, the sculpture workshop of the blind sculptor Juan Jose Garcia Antonio. He has a special devotion to creating mermaids in clay. After lunch at Amlu we will visit the Navarro family in Santo Tomas Jalieza.
