  • This place is wonderful. We attended James its owner and director of this workshop that not you asks nothing to Sergio Bustamante or to Britto. It is simply a center of art around the world. It is incredible to see the wonders that create their craft artists who are part of this place which is a bit of heaven on Earth. If you have time is worthwhile you reports of the workshops as this ancient art is still practiced and their directors are magical people. Thank you James for opening the doors of your home. We were delighted.

  • When you think you've seen the beginning and the end of Mexican handicrafts arrive in the village of San Martín Tilcajete and immediately arrive at what seems a forgotten people, however within 70% of the houses that there you can find the richness of Mexican culture. One of these places is this workshop that retains traditional forms for the elaboration of an alebrije since the pigmentation natural as painting the parts unique in its kind. It is a place that worth a visit and where we can enjoy at the sensory level.

  • The workshop of Jacobo and Maria Angeles is an absolute must visit if you are a fan (or collector) of alebrijes (handcrafted colorful wood carvings, generally of animals). Here you are able to watch, listen, and learn from artist as they carve new alebrijes. The quality of work produced by here is excellent (and, for the larger pieces, can be quite expensive).
  • Impresionante, vale la pena
  • Excellent Alebrije's craftsmanship
  • excellent place to know alebrijes, can buy handicrafts and participate in a workshop taught by the craftsmen
