Description of the series
Thread Caravan hosts cultural art workshops around the world in an effort to preserve traditional art forms, and provide a platform for deeper cross-cultural understanding and creative inspiration.
Started 3 years ago, Thread Caravan currently hosts weaving workshops with indigenous Kaqchikel artisans in Guatemala, weaving, ceramics and mezcal-making trips with indigenous Zapotec artisans in Oaxaca, Mexico and sailing and embroidery trips with indigenous Guna artisans in Panama.
This photo series was taken by Caitlin during a textile trip in Oaxaca, Mexico.
