X'se tagħmel

My friend Cesar will pick you at your hotel or airbnb (whit in the 68000 CP). 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.

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.

This was a very lovely and interesting experience, highly recommended. We learned a lot and had a nice conversation. Even if you normally don't paint you should give it a try.

This was a great experience. We have three boys 12,10 and 8 and we all had a great time painting the alebrijes and learning about the process and Armandos history. I would highly recommend this experience.

Fantastic trip, Armando was kind and he was a great host. He translated everything for us and got involved with the painting too. Would recommend highly

A wonderful experience our entire family enjoyed. We got to see a bit of carving, hear the history of alebrijes, learn about natural dyes, and then try our hands at painting our own alebrije. We had a wonderful time!

I only have great things to say about Armando’s workshop. It was a wonderful experience to get to learn about the family’s history and the art of making alebrijes. To learn it from such a warm, passionate, and kind family made it even more memorable for me. There was a super tight window during my stay in Oaxaca to be able to attend and they were so accommodating and quick to respond to my messages to make something work (thank you, Cesar!). Highly recommend this Airbnb experience to anyone visiting Oaxaca. Thank you to the Jimenez family for sharing your talents and for allowing others the opportunity to take part in your culture’s art. Muchas gracias!

Great way to know more about alebrijes and the people that make them, Cesar is a thoughtful driver/translator, and the Armando and his family are very welcoming.
