Oaxaca City, Teotitlan del Valle, San Sebastián Teitipac
One of humankind’s earliest inventions is on display right in front of you. And despite it being created the same way in this village for generations, a nearby village has its own traditions, and another still. Pottery is a way of life in Oaxaca, forged from the earth itself and linked to its civilization. Each piece is unique, slightly different in shape and texture, unquestionably linked to the red hills and sprawling landscape around you. And each possesses an imprecise beauty: a piece of Oaxacan magic you can hold in the palm of your hand.
Learning alongside you is Portland potter Sarah Wolf. A ceramics connoisseur and outdoor aficionado, Sarah’s company, Wolf Ceramics, has grown from humble beginnings to becoming one of Portland’s most beloved ceramics brands. Sarah is beyond excited to experience the artistic side of Oaxaca and how the land influences what people are creating.
If you travel to get inspired this trip is for you. Learn from traditional craftspeople in-studio and ancient villages, craft your own ceramics and hone your artistic eye. And Oaxaca’s creative side doesn’t stop at the art: savor some of Mexico’s most delicious cuisine, its renowned mezcal and bustling food markets. Oaxaca is waiting for you.

3 Reasons to Travel with Wolf Ceramics
Portland-based Wolf Ceramics crafts with a conscience. Founder Sarah Wolf is an artist, maker and ceramicist. She started her growing company to pursue her passion and hasn’t looked back. She’s a fearless entrepreneur who knows the value of creating pieces you’ll use—and care about—for life. We’re excited to explore the art, craft and community of Oaxaca with Sarah.
Sarah studied geochemistry and almost pursued a degree in architecture, but decided ceramics was her passion. “I love working with my hands, and it is incredibly satisfying to make objects that will be well used.”
Feel at Home
In an age of mass production, Sarah encourages us to surround ourselves with meaningful things. “Our goal is to create pieces that people will make a part of their lives, pieces that will have a home.”
Having traveled the world for the love of art and traditional craft, Sarah’s excited to explore the artful side of Oaxaca—the craft and community of the indigenous people that give this region of Mexico its magic.
El CallejonOaxaca City
Off a central side street, a few blocks from the zocalo and central shops and eateries, a street gate opens into a breathtaking oasis that’s our Oaxaca City home: a boutique hotel with a dozen spacious rooms blending the city’s distinctive styles. Serenity reigns in its thoughtful garden spaces, with palm trees, covered walkways and an outdoor patio bar.
Ex Hacienda San AntonioSan Sebastián Teitipac
A 300-year-old hacienda tucked away in the mountains, just 45 minutes’ drive south of Oaxaca City. Mountains press on the cacti-filled premises, where arched walkways look in toward an open, interior courtyard and bell tower. Each of the 16 rooms has been lovingly restored in a mix of traditional and contemporary designs. There are two pools (one inside, one out) and an on-site spa, plus hiking, horseback riding and biking options. The hacienda is relaxing and private, the ideal place to soak in the golden dusk with a cocktail.
