María Bautista teaches the traditional way of making pottery in Chiapas, which she learned when she was eight years old. The instruction begins with sharing how clay is harvested in the fields through to firing clay works in a wood kiln. Bautista instructs how to hand-build clay using essential tools to create vessels used to eat and drink. This program also includes creating and enjoying a traditional maize-based drink.
