What you'll do

Iconic General's Martin Miguel de Güemes monument will be the meeting point. Right there next to it, we'll be seating on a rock shape seats and a table that the place offers to us, surrounded by nature and a beatiful panomaric view of Salta's city. Having and shearing delicious "mates" (traditional Argentine infusion). among chats, anecdotes an laughter; helped by my girlfriend Paula, we'll teach you the art of embossing on Alpaca. typical metal used by artisans from the north of Argentina, with wich we can make beautiful decorative objects and accesories; very similar to silver. Through this millenary technique, we'll obtain a luxury accesory for both men and women, included children. By only using rudimentary tools, you'll not only take with you an object, but the basic knowledge and principles of the Alpaca's embossing art and a small part of our culture.

This is a really fun activity with an expert instructor. I haven't seen it in any of the other places I have traveled.

Had a lovely morning with Carlos and his wife in a serene, open park setting. They were very patient teachers, and I left with a great souvenir, something I made myself.

Es ist eine super Erfahrung! Charly bringt einem das Handwerk und die Kultur näher von Salta näher. Ausserdem sind er und seine Frau extrem gastfreundlich. Man bekommt ein argentinisches Frühstück und man erfährt sehr viel über das Leben der Leute in Argentinien.

A great experience learning about a local craft of embossing on metal. Carlos really looked after us, and offered is mate and a snack too. He is very knowledgeable and has made very detailed pieces. He helped me when my hands got a bit tired and made suggestions to make the best piece. I was really impressed with the experience!

We really enjoyed meeting Carlos and Paula, they were very nice and helpful. We enjoyed the two crafts we did together and now we have something to remind us of Salta and the culture here. The experience with Carlos and Paula made our stay in Salta more special. Highly recommend it!

I highly recommend this workshop! My son and I did this workshop together and both loved it. The hosts are very kind, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. The crafting process was fun and really well explained! They shares regional foods and drink with us as well as recommendations for more in the area. The location was perfect - pretty, easy to find, and comfortable.
