Oaxaca 2022

Oaxaca 2022 Fundraiser!

Backstrap weaver Oaxaca Mexico

I am planning to travel to Oaxaca, Mexico at the end of January, beginning of February 2022, and need your help! Once again, I am seeking donations to help fund the trip. The purpose of this trip is to help local artisans hit hard by the pandemic. I will be teaching several 2-day workshops during my time there.
The workshops will be free for the artisans.

Through this project I intend to reach 40 to 50 artisans, in turn, they will be able to reach out to others in their villages and teach them. These will be indigo workshops utilizing local ingredients. Participants will learn to make an indigo vat that is easy to maintain and long-lasting. And, importantly, I will be asking the participants to bring materials they traditionally work with.
It is important that the participants become comfortable using an indigo vat with the materials they work with whether it be wool, cotton, or silk! 

Each $25.00 donation will fund the cost of 1 indigo vat! Each $50.00 donation will fund a day’s lunch for the participants. Some of the money will go to food, lodging, and ground transportation while I am in Oaxaca. A generous donor has already covered my airfare!!

Many of you already know about my work over the past 20 years traveling and teaching free workshops to people in need. I am so grateful that I can continue to do this. But it can only happen with your kind generosity!!

There are lots of lovely rewards available!! Tax-deductible donations can be made through my fiscal sponsor Fractured Atlas by using the following link:
