Mitä teet

My friend Cesar will pick you at your hotel or wherever else is convenient for you. From there it will take around 30 minutes to the Aleberije village Arrazola in their private car.

In Arrazola, you will meet me, my wife Antonia and our son Alejandro at our workshop to show you the entire creation process of our amazing art: from carving the wood; making natural colors out of local fruits, insects and minerals to painting the figures in the traditional design with acrylic paint.

Cesar will translate into English if needed.

Now the fun part starts. Time to get creative. You will choose a small plain wooden animal figure to paint yourself which could take up to two hours. Brushes and colors will be provided. This will be a lovely souvenir to take home and remember this experience!

Besides all this, you can check our gallery for more stunning art!

After we finished in Arrazola, Cesar will take you back to the starting point.

Hi, my name is Armando. I live in Arrazola, the village where alebrijes were born, around 14 km away from Oaxaca City. It was my grandfather Manuel Jiménez, who became famous for his wooden alebrijes in 1950.
Making alebrijes is my passion. I've been carving and painting the figures for more than 30 years. My entire family is into this beautiful art, like most families here in Arrazola.
Together with my friend Cesar which I met through my work, we want to teach more people about our way to express emotions through the Alebrijes work and welcome you in my village.

Missä tulette olemaan

The workshop takes place in the front yard of my house. There is a cute area with tables and chairs under a roof to get creative. The gallery and two dogs are also part of the house.

Really loved this experience. From the moment you arrive it feels like you’re part of the family. Lots of laughter, storytelling, and great company. So nice to support a local family directly and sidestep the corrupt tour companies that don’t benefit the local community nearly as much.

We loved this experience! We have to work during the day and they let us set up a specific time at night. The story’s and the figures were magical, the seven of us had the best time and everything from pick up to drop off was seemless! I think this is a must do activity in Oaxaca! Thank you thank you!

This is such an awesome experience and an authentic way to learn more about Alebrije making. Armando's grandfather was the first to switch from paper mache to wood and their family's impact can easily be seen across Oaxaca. Once you go and see these for yourselves, you won't want to buy the knockoffs from the Mercado. I was able to choose my own wood figurine to paint and enjoyed learning more about the original way of painting from Armando and his family. They all are painting with you, and seeing them work helps to illustrate even more how much of an art form their Alebrije is. They have a small gallery where you can purchase additional authentic pieces at a very reasonable price and can even custom paint one for you if they don't have the animal you want. This experience is worth it x 10 (especially when considering you are supporting and buying from the artists directly) and should be added to your itinerary! :)

Wow, what a mind blowing experience spending time with a master artist and his family, watching their creative process from start to finish. Incredible skill in the techniques involved, which became all the more apparent when comparing my personal ‘masterpiece’ to the real thing! What an honour to spend such a creative morning painting, chatting and drinking cups of coffee - I loved it! And a special mention to the amazing Cesar, who facilitated and translated the experience and drove me to the village. What an absolutely awesome guy, so committed to ensuring equity and recognition of the local artists themselves, so often exploited in the past. I highly recommend this experience! (And make sure you take some cash to buy one of Armando’s amazing pieces from the small gallery at his home - really great value.)

You’ll listen Armando’s story while he chops wood, get a shot of mezcal and paint an alebrije with a little guidance. They will hand you an album to get some inspo.
