Artisan. This is the main premise of Mercado ArteSano, one of the areas that helps shape the reggae universe that is Rototom Sunsplash. From stands, restaurants and a chillout area to a line up full of workshops.
Imagine making your own jewellery. Why not? This is just one of the many possibilities on offer at the Rototom’s Mercado ArteSano. A full line up of workshops and activities, as much for families and children as for adults, all related to arts and crafts, such as the Jewellery creation workshop that took place on Wednesday 16th at Mar al vent.
A creative, artesian and alternative line up perfectly complements the stands in the area. A circular space where you can encounter find a wide array of treats from a range of craft beers to a tasty sandwich, or what about a pizza from the Elves? From the incredible variety of products on offer like accessories (e.g. original leather wallets), decoration (like wooden teardrop pendants and earrings), and clothes and much more. Although, there’s one thing it all has in common: everything is artisan.
It’s also a lovely place to relax, as in the epicentre of the Mercado ArteSano, you can find a chillout area under a cloth shelter. All this right next to the Main Stage. It’s a given that once you enter this area you will be totally absorbed. The batacuda rhythms are playing, which can mean only one thing: The concerts are starting.
