Know Before You Go
The workshop is open to visitors Monday to Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The small wooden gate is always kept unlocked—just push it open and let yourself in.
Visitors can watch the Woodlanders dye fibers over fire-hearths, bind book covers, and print posters using techniques passed down from their ancient Maya ancestors.
There’s also a small gift shop where, subject to availability, visitors can buy Maya books that are produced on-site, including Incantations: Songs, Spells, and Images by Mayan Women and Mayan Hearts. There’s also a large collection of hand-made notebooks, postcards, and fine-art prints for sale.
(You may find second-hand copies of Incantations and Mayan Hearts on Amazon, but please note that the best way to support the collective is to buy directly from the Woodlanders. Please note that the collective only accepts cash.)
If you wish to make a donation, commission a special work, or order a book, email Javier at firstname.lastname@example.org. Expect at least 48 hours to receive a response.
