Craft > Brazil > A Relaxing Tour of Centro Mestre Noza in Brazil

 Nov 17 2022  

In the center of Juazeiro do Norte - CE there is a mansion that once belonged to the Ceará Military Police, but which now blooms with colors and shapes as it houses the Mestre Noza Popular Culture Center . Small rooms around a patio concentrate what is most traditional in Ceará and Northeastern artisanal culture. Named in honor of the late woodcut artist Mestre Noza, the Centro de Cultura Popular aims to concentrate the region's handicrafts to boost their dissemination and sale. Operating since 1983, the Center is a cooperative with more than 100 registered artisans with varied works, from wood, clay and iron, to natural fibers and recycled material.
