Oaxacan Woodcarving at Brickbottom Open Studios
Come join master woodcarver Ventura Fabian and his son, Norberto, as they create their hand-carved, hand-painted Oaxacan wooden figures. Ventura is one of the most original and well-knownwoodcarvers in Oaxaca, Mexico. Brilliantly colored and strikingly designed, many of his carvings are rooted in aspects of daily life in his small village of San Martín Tilcajete; others are wildly imaginative, springing wholly from the realm of fantasy.
