The ArteSano Market is much more than a market; it’s a place where you can get to know closely the handcrafted work and the artisan themselves, share experiences and impressions and, also, you can buy all kind of products. But there’s more, the ArteSano Market organize many workshops and activities along the festival.
The protagonist of the ArteSano Market workshops at Rototom 2017 could not be other than Africa. They share customs, tradition and of course the handcrafted work of the continent with the public. For example there was a workshop about clothing print design in the African style, where the participant could create their own piece of clothing.
They only needed a piece of clothing where they could paint. With a mix of hot wax and paraffin, the participants have designed their own print and after that they added a coat of paint that covers all the piece of clothing, except for the print made with hot wax and paraffin that will change its colour.
What’s the result? A splash of colour and creativity that decorates the ArteSano Market at #celebratingafrica Rototom Sunsplash.
