Crafts, workshops, clothing, accessories, food, drinks … There is a space in Rototom Sunsplash that combines each and every one of these, it is the Mercado ArteSano.. An area with a special air which remains near the Main Stage. We are not talking about a typical market, I wouldn’t step on it if you where hoping to find something not outrageous. It is a unique space in which the value of the artisan work is the central focus in the area.
Its circular shape is given by the stands where you can browse-and recommendable to approach and check it out. Bracelets, handbags, shirts, skirts, … and right in the center you have an area to lay down and relax in this particular artisan world. You can also stop to rest or enjoy some of the dining options the area offers; such as a delicious pizza that its only aroma will take your full attention. What’s also interesting is to stand to discover the wide variety of craft beers offered by some of the stands. And why not do it on a bale of straw? Do it.
In the center of this particular Mercado ArteSano many other things happen around it, such as different workshops related, of course, with the traditional world they occur. Why not dive into the world of the distillation of aromatic plants and cosmetics? Its possible. See in first hand how it is possible to, for example, manufacture a handmade shampoo through distillation of lavender. And while all this happens, people gather around the master craftsman who teaches the workshop in a vary curiously way and, just like children, we feel like discovering something completely new. That’s what happens when one starts cruising around Rototom Sunsplash corners.
