About the event

Tierra Mariposa celebrates three years learning from Santa Cruz Papalutla, what began as a dream of individual space became a communal space.


just almost 9 years ago I heard my call to this earth, before I was confused, deaf, dizzy, sad. I had had contact with ceramics, I knew that it was an expensive material to work with, I tried it in different parts, obtaining negative results in order to achieve my objective of having it as a practice.


I worked in other spaces with a lot of dedication and affection, because with passion they called me to this world and it is something that always guides me. However, a part of me was still thirsty, the first year of my little Demian's life I remember hugging him tight and promising to be a happy mother, throwing myself into the arena of creation to be his example and seek happiness and always give yourself opportunities, be kind to yourself and redirect the boat if necessary.

Walking along the tourist walkway I received an invitation to a ceramics workshop and I attended. The workshop was in Atzompa.


Atzompa was a key place to explore the material, I worked with four artisans from that community before arriving with the teachers who helped me not only understand, undertake, think and accommodate my life around clay.

My dream has always been and will be to have my space where I can go crazy in my creation, because it is always different, sometimes you need company, sometimes you don't want to see anyone, sometimes you cry a lot, laugh, ask for silence, makes music.


Tierra Mariposa is the space that also opens up just as they opened it for me and it is the greatest teaching that I keep from my guides, the mud is good, it is a giver of life, of spirit, the mud is noble and gives to everyone like the infinite morning sun.


Let's celebrate Butterfly Land with this clay modeling workshop for girls and boys from the town of Santa Cruz Papalutla. With the objective of sharing an hour and a half of games, modeling in clay making a community, expressing our emotions through movement, play and clay.
