|an artisan workshop in Oaxaca|
The walls of Oaxaca tell the stories of a proud people. Workshops (talleres) and galleries abound in the neighbourhood where Janet and I are staying this year.
We've been here four days. Yesterday, we went out to a pueblo school and visited a restored building that had once housed a cotton mill. The mill, built in 1883, was restored with the support Francisco Toledo, a renowned and generous artist, and the Harpú Foundation. It now houses El Centro por las Artes de San Agustín, an art workshop and gallery facility which overlooks the valley.
