THE ARTISANS OF SAN MIGUEL



The next couple of days in San Miguel were devoted to scouting out the local artisans, both at Fábrica La Aurora (a converted cotton mill housing many galleries and studios where you can actually see the artists at work and, if you have time and plan ahead, take a workshop yourself) and at the Mercado de Artesanias ( a couple of pedestrian streets filled with booths selling all sorts of local handicrafts), and on all the streets in between.

Fiber Woman, of course, was entranced by one of a kind ensembles featuring hand-painted fabrics.

So much eye-candy, so little time.

You have really captured the special ambience of San Miguel de Allende. Second visit really helps the eye capture all of the special places.
