Studio Xaquixe’s 380-square meter studio is located in the Oaxaca 2000 Industrial Park in the community of Magdalena Apasco, a short drive outside Oaxaca City’s historic district.






Getting to Studio Xaquixe involves a few simple steps based on your mode of transport.

By car drive north on Federal Highway 190 (Carretera Federal a México) out of the city center towards the exit for Mexico City. Bear right onto the libre Highway 190 at the cuota autopista entrance, about 7.5 miles (12 km) from city center. Continue several miles. You will see signs for the village of Magdalena Apasco, and the large entrance for the Industrial Park on the left side. Visitors must stop at the front gate. Let them know you are heading to Vidrio Artesanal Xaquixe. Drive straight into the industrial park, go two blocks on Avenida de las Naciones, the main drive, and turn left at Avenida México. We’re half a block down on the left; look for our sign.

By collective taxi. First head to the Central de Abastos on the south side of City Center. Collective taxis (colectivos) are situated on V. Trujano, which runs along the second class bus station’s north side. You can board any collective taxi heading towards HUITZO, TELIX, MAGDALENA or SUCHIL. The ride takes about 30 minutes, depending on traffic. Ask the driver to let you off at the entrance of the Industrial Park in the community of Magdalena Apasco. Then follow instructions above once outside the entrance for the industrial park, or the map below.

Oaxaca City is six hours from Mexico City and situated in a majority indigenous region in southern Mexico. It is often described as the frontier between the industrialized North and the traditional indigenous communities to the south. Consequently it is a region of open, diverse and multicultural communities that produce amazing work - from weaving, to handcrafted pottery, to the richest artisanal mezcals in the world - in addition to great thinkers and artists. The state is often considered the gastronomic epicenter of Mexico’s rich palette of flavors. A visit to Studio Xaquixe and Oaxaca wouldn’t be complete without tasting, trying and venturing out to see the many delights Oaxaca and its community have to offer.
