Event Description

Each year since 2015 a group of designers led by Pratt Professor Rebecca Welz travels to Antigua, Guatemala to collaborate with local artisans. We spend 2 weeks working with weavers, woodworkers, leatherworkers, a shoemaker, a welder, seamstresses and a silversmith.

We develop relationships with the artisans . Our process is analog. We come from a highly mechanized world and settle into an experience of making and storytelling with our hands. Meet us at WantedDesign and we can share our stories
