Your first stop on this tour will be in the community of Tlapazola to visit a “Barro Rojo” pottery workshop where you will learn about the technique of making this craft preserved by the local women. Later, you will head to the town of Teotitlán del Valle to meet a family of wool rug weavers, who will show you the stages of the Oaxacan textiles of carding, spinning, dyeing and weaving the fiber into a work of art, whose design keeps old symbolisms of the Zapotec culture.

Finally, the tour ends in a palenque dedicated to the production of Mezcal, where you can learn about some varieties of agaves, the manufacturing processes and taste some varieties of the mythical and ancestral drink. This journey through ceramics, textiles and mezcal will take you approximately 5 hours.
