Choose an immense cooking pot to prepare mole, flowerpots, traditional smiling suns or a representative tree of life: authentic treasures composed of small figures.

DISCOVER THE SECRET OF THE TREES OF LIFE
Head towards old Metepec through Santiaguito, Santa Cruz, San Mateo, San Miguel and Espiritu Santo neighborhoods. Enter the famous workshops of clay craftsmen. Ask the masters to show you step by step what it takes to create a work of art.

BE A POTTER
Become a potter and help prepare the clay, strongly knead the cold and wet mixture. Discover the figure that comes from the mixture that smells like dirt and decorate it like a master. Accompany the piece to the oven and admire how the red flames grow and cook the piece until it is finished.
