Legacy Project

Dedicated to inspire and empower the next generation of weavers, the Legacy Project was founded by Martinez Studio in 2014. Initially focused on Sandra’s symbolist works, the collection will debut designs from Wence’s Buffalo Robe series in 2018. To date, over thirty Martinez Studio designs have been produced in the Legacy Project.

Closely mentored by master weaver Wence, Malena Martinez (daughter) and Jacobo Martinez (son-in-law) are his principle apprentices. They are learning specialized hand dyeing practices and developing their instincts to render tonal variations within the design framework. Wence travels to the village multiple times a year to provide hands-on training throughout all stages of the dyeing and weaving process. Malena and Jacobo are learning important traditions and techniques that allow them the opportunity to grow and develop their craft.

Malena Martinez

In 2018, Malena began weaving a series of Wence’s Buffalo Robe-inspired works in hand-spun wool under Wence’s guided supervision. This marks the first time Wence has allowed his designs to be woven by anyone but himself.

 

 

Jacobo Martinez

For many years, Jacobo concentrated on rendering traditional Mexican glyphs commonly found in Teotitlan’s tourist market. He takes great pride in weaving Sandra’s designs because they contain challenging curves and an emphasis on tonal variation, both of which stretch his skill set.
