Folk Tree Pasadena offers Oaxacan folk art tour June 28-July 9

June 28 – July 9, 2011

Rocky Behr, the world traveling owner of The Folk Tree in Pasadena, is now accepting inscriptions for her summer Mexican adventure into the world of Oaxacan Folk Art. Participants will be treated to the best that Oaxaca has to offer, including private visits with famous and collectable artists; woodcarvers, potters, tinsmiths, weavers, and paper artists.

The tour continues with visits to the important pre-Columbian sites of Dainzu, the ruins of Lambityeco, fascinating Monte Alban and Mitla; world class archeology sites with a presentation by the archeologist who has been studying them for years; a cooking class with the renowned Susanna Trilling; visits to off the track local markets, a sixteenth century monastery, and the various small villages famous for their artists.

Rocky has been leading respected tours in Oaxaca for more than twenty-five years. Her knowledge is extensive, and she shares if freely. Folk Tree Tours offer culture, shopping and gastronomic delights and fun for participants.

Oaxaca is a beautiful colonial city and is free of the violence one hears about in the press. The tour is limited to a small group, so reservations are a must. To find out more, request the tour brochure, and join the tour, call or email us.
