Taller Jacobo y Maria Angeles
Thirty years ago our town San Martín Tilcajete wasn’t what it is nowadays. The main source of employment was agriculture and only a few were engaged in the wood carving practice, also there was a strong inclination towards migrating to the United States. Despite these circumstances in 1994 Jacobo and María Angeles Workshop opened with the desire to undertake and rescue the ancestral practice of carving tonas and nahuales . Slowly the workshop got bigger and bigger and developed the particular style that identifies it, always perfecting the one-log wood carving technique to this day always with the aim of innovating, reinventing the workshop and working under the values of the commonality like teaching, sharing and contributing.
Since its beginning, the workshop has been committed to its natural and social environment and we can proudly say that we have generated more than three hundred jobs and have planted more than nineteen thousand copal trees in our region to date.
