Arts & Crafts in Corumbá

The old prison has swapped inmates for artists; each cell holds a different workshop. There's a strong sustainable focus, with lots of impressive creations from recycled materials. An extraordinary women's social collective, Amor Peixe, produces beautiful things from fish skin, while others weave wickerwork from water plants and fashion fascinating objects from discarded towels and socks.
