Let’s learn Colombian ancestral wisdom with the traditional bag workshop

Mochilas are a traditional type of bag woven from wool by members of Indigenous communities from northern Colombia, and are popular across the country. With this workshop, you’ll not only learn about mochilas and how they are made, but you’ll also get to design one yourself with the help of an experienced artisan from the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta region.
