Dolores Eaton visiting Oaxaca, Mexico

Dolores Eaton is spending the week in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico, visiting ceramicists, woodcarvers, and weavers. Eaton also reported that she is taking in the festivities that revolve around the Day of Dead Celebration, which is the biggest festival of the year in Oaxaca.

"We have gone out to many villages to visit artists' homes and workshops and have been privy to demonstrations of their crafts. I have visited ancient ruins, participated in a cooking class, visited cemeteries where the graves are adorned with flowers and candles preparing to welcome loved ones and ancestors back to earth, and have watched countless parades," she noted.
