ARTISANS MAKE PROGRESS WITH FIRST ROUND OF BIRD ORNAMENTS

February 19, 2022

As we moved into the afternoon of the second day of Amazon Ecology's Artisan Facilitator training workshop in the community of Amazonas, all of the participants were close to completing at least one of the woven bird assigned to their group.
A few of the artisans with several years of experience had almost finished making two northern cardinals - the model representing this popular bird in the US. It was impressive as well to see advances in more complicated models like the great blue heron, marvelous spatule-tail hummingbird and chestnut-eared aracari.
These ornaments will be available for sale at our online store after I get home in April.
