COPPERSMITHS, CARVERS & WEAVERS
Our day tour to Santa Clara del Cobre offers more than just the wonderful copper makers. We will start in the home of a mask carver, followed by weavers who create beautiful gabons and small woven pieces. From there, we will visit a workshop to see and participate in a copper demonstration. Guests are invited to hammer copper fresh out of the fire, and will learn about the process of this important art form here.
We can break for lunch at one of the local restaurants or taco stands, unless guests would like to visit Rancho la Mesa, for the stunning views of Lake Patzucaro. We offer these options as some guests truly love to eat the street food, while others may prefer a relaxing setting.
Following lunch, we will head to the small furniture village of Cuanajo, where artisans create colorfully ornamented wood pieces from pine, including wardrobes, chests, tables, beds and home decor features such as mirrors, and carved art murals for the wall. We will also stop at a small but important church in the village of Tupataro. Featuring an elaborately painted ceiling, this church is considered one of the most special in our area.
