JOIN ME AT AN IMMERSIVE MAKERS MEAL IN OAXACA, MEXICO
SAT, FEB 16 - SUN, FEB 17, 2019
Stampworthy owes much of its style to the indigenous culture of Oaxaca. The city is a sensory explosion - from the rainbow Otomi fabrics I’ve used for my furniture to the smokey mezcal and decadent molé.
It’s why I keep going back. And this year, I’m doing something new - combining my 10+ years in the travel industry with my current life as Stampworthy style curator…I’m bringing people with me! It’s the official launch of Stampworthy Travel!
You are invited to join Stampworthy, (and food, textile, and culture enthusiasts from across the US and Mexico) to join a genuine Oaxacan experience, centered around a local event produced by Makers Meals and Oaxacan-based curator Convivio.
Date: Sat, February 16 - Sun, February 17, 2019

about the meal
I don’t use the word “authentic” lightly. But this meal is just that. It’ revolved around celebrating and interacting with local Oaxacan makers - mixologists, chefs, musicians, and more.
For one night only, Convivio’s garden will be transformed, providing the setting for our long table supper featuring the food, drink and art of Oaxaca’s thriving MaFeker community. This meal will highlight a combination of Oaxacan traditions, old and new, featuring chefs Eduardo Vera of Atila del Sur and Julio Aguilera formerly of El Destillado.
Mezcal will be our spirit of choice as we explore its rich history and versatility with Mixologist extraordinaire, Taïs Kuri, and experience a mezcal tasting featuring rare, small-batch varieties.
Tablescapes will be designed by Caitlin Ahern, to highlight local textile and ceramics artisans and will incorporate heritage maíz and indigenous plants.
The evening will also feature a traditional Calenda brass band and several local artists who plan to create unique pieces for the evening.
