Oaxacan Engraving Workshop with Ludwing

Oaxacan Engraving Workshop with Ludwing

Make your own prints (grabados) in Tlayudona with Ludwing!

You can’t go more than a block or two in the city center without recognizing how important printmaking is to the local community. It has been a pilar of the popular art movement in Oaxaca, and the aesthetic behind many forms of resistance.

We are pleased to present another in our new series of collaborations with emerging Oaxacan artists and crafters in this engraving and printmaking experience. We love visibilizing women’s art and narratives within the local context!

These experiences are flexible and easy to arrange. The best part? If you’re a solo traveler and don’t require translation, you can book them for just you (with little to no prior notice).

Ludwig is from Oaxaca de Juárez, Mexico. He is a plastic artist with extensive knowledge in different pictorial and graphic techniques. He began his studies in Plastic and Visual Arts at the Benito Juárez Autonomous University of Oaxaca.
