Craft your own souvenir and support a good purpose. Coconuts are not only used for drinks but also to create accessories or decorations. The project DAMARTES (Damas y Madres del Arte – ‘Women and Mothers of Art’) began with the name Madres – Cabeza de Familia y sus Cocos (‘Mothers – head of the family and their coconuts’) and is an association composed of seven women. In 2008, they took part in a craft class sponsored by the foundation ProBoquilla. Nowadays, they produce jewelry, containers, vases, belts, and accessories and are the first women of La Boquilla that purchase their own income. Producing an object out of a coconut requires above all enthusiasm and patience.
The life of the DAMARTES is very impressive. All of them are mothers and most of them already grandmothers with interesting life stories that they like to share with us. The association is a working group of great women that are able to craft amazing things out of simple objects.
We will go to La Boquilla, where the ladies will invite us to a very special workshop. Every participant can make his own souvenir out of a coconut. It is possible to craft bracelets, keychains, earrings, or necklaces. The workshop will take place in a nice rustic restaurant right on the beach of La Boquilla.
