Welcome to the workshop for the traditional Colombian bag, the mochila!
This will be a journey through the indigenous ancestral culture of the northern lands of Colombia. We will learn the importance of native peoples and their art. We will walk through the colonial historical center before going to a local café to try an indigenous fermented drink. Next we will head to the workshop of an indigenous artisan descending from Kankuama blood from the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and Wayú blood from the desert area in the northernmost part of the South American continent La Guajira. From her, we will learn the sheep wool process and how to make our own miniature traditional bag step-by-step with a technique that unites 4 of the main native tribes. Afterwards each of us will also receive a large mochila made by a group of women from the tribe and in this way we will go home with a purely Colombian product that also helps more indigenous families to get ahead.
