Join Our 2014 Brigade

Posted by Abby Silver

Benito Romero handbuilds a traditional comale during the 2008 brigade. After this Benito taught the brigadistas how to make corn tortillas.

The 2014 Brigade to Nicaragua will run from January 25 – February 8 and registration has begun.

Potters and non-potters alike are welcome to join this hands-on experience where we’ll visit, learn from, and work with indigenous Nicaraguan potters. The group will travel by minibus to remote pottery villages and stay in rustic hotels or, occasionally, with villagers.

This is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture and craft of this lovely country.

The fee is $1800 which includes all costs except airfare to and from Nicaragua and minor personal expenses. More information plus a registration package is available here.

    Do you have a problem if I am going to use the website “indiegogo” for raising funds for a brigade trip?

    Interested in the January Brigade. How quickly does a group fill up? Thank you!

    I am interested in your program. I am planing to introduce the POU to the people of Ekiti in Nigeria, using the indigenous skill of potters at Isan Ekiti. The Nicaragua experience is welcomed.
