  • Description



    Our creative space was created this year, excited to share our ideas. We are a small workshop located in the center of the city of Puebla, 10 min walking far from the zocalo, so it is very near from some turistic places in Puebla (typical Mexican market, parks, cultural centre, restaurants, museums, churches, etc.). We have just around the corner the bus stop so you can have access to all the places that you want to visit in Puebla. We have a beautiful view of the city from our window, and we have five fish that are our pets.

    We are three friends that are working in this design workshop, so we are looking for people who can share their knowledge about the courses that we teach and help us with some tips to improve our skills.

    We're looking for creative and reliable people to share their knowledge. We are focused on industrial desing, architecture, screen printing, carpentry, digital design, eco design, recycled, handcraft designs and almost anything that we can dream and make. If you love making things with your hands this is the place!
