Estudio Paloma The studio is just outside town and we can advise you about transportation to and from the workshop. If you need to take a taxi and four people share, it's only about 50 cents a person. The address for the taxi driver is Paloma 11, in Colonia La Luz. We can call taxis to pick you up if you choose to stay and work after the workshop day ends. Visit the Facebook page, Estudio Paloma San Miguel to see photos of the studio.
We welcome all clay artists and students from all over the world to our workshops. Please visit even if you are not taking a workshop. We hope to see you soon!
