About this Workshop

Description

In this Workshop, Learners will make and decorate a small clay fountain in the Diaguita´s style.

The Diaguita people are an indigenous group native to Chile, and they existed mainly from 900 to 1200.  They are known for their pottery, and would make functional ceramic pieces to use them to cook, store water and worship gods. They also decorated their ceramic pieces with characteristic geometric patterns, and using only three colors (white, red and black) that they extracted from the nature.

To this day, those ceramic pieces are still being sold during folk fairs by Diaguita´s descendants, so that people can have a piece of their culture at their houses, as a decorative piece and/or as functional vessels to cook and store water with.

I am excited to meet you and teach you more about the Diaguita people as we make our fountain together!

Carolina CabañasView Profile

My name is Carolina, but you can call me Caro :)  I am of Chilean and Spanish descent.  I love to craft, and I love to learn new crafts.  I also love dogs and airplanes, and cannot envision my life without dogs playing in my big garden!

My life as a craftsperson began at eight years old, when my mom bought me a magazine that demonstrated how to weave beaded bracelets.  To this day, my favorite materials to work with are all kinds of beads, such as toho and miyuki.  I also love working with natural gemstones, wood (or gum), gouges, cold porcelain clay, and traditional thread and needles!

I live in Chile, but have many friends from Australia, Spain, and America.  My favorite thing about living in Chile is that I can get to the mountains or the beach, from my home, in two hours!  I am also able to visit the most arid desert on the planet (Atacama, Chile), as well as the glaciers in the south.

Today, I work as a Crossmedia Designer, which means I apply my artistic skill across a variety of media.  I am so excited to bring these skills to my role as a GLOMADO Instructor.  I LOVE experiencing all the unique cultures around the world, and am so excited for you to get to know some of mine!
