About the tour

Join me to visit the barniz workshop of the master Gilberto Granja and learn about the history of the transformation of a cultural expression, protection of an ancestral legacy, transmission and projection of the traditional knowledge of a community that creates forms of great artisanal beauty with the resin of the mopa-mopa plant. This is a tour for colombian culture enthusiasts, and if you would like to learn about the history and process to make barniz de Pasto, this one is not to be missed!

I am completely in awe of the men demonstrating this traditional craft using natural resources from the land i.e. buds from the MopaMopa tree. I applaud their patience, skill and artistic pride. It was a joy to watch. I am keen to research more of their work so thank you for sharing this tour with us.
