Woodworking Class–Things to do in Valle de Bravo

We recently spent several days in Valle de Bravo and we had the opportunity to learn more about the town and its history. The highlight of our trip was meeting Gaspart and his beautiful family, who have several successful business enterprises right in the heart of Valle de Bravo.

Gaspart Studio is the masterpiece of Gaspart Tellez who has more than 33 years of experience in the United States. At their studio, they offer a wide array of woodworking classes–everything from a three year technical program to become proficient in fine woodworking to casual classes for those interested in woodworking as only a hobby.

Also on site, Gaspart and family have opened a School of Ceramics, built lodging in the form of wood-framed cabins, and also have opened a restaurant, Tellus Bistro, which serves Los Angeles fusion cuisine. Nearly everything on the spacious, peaceful property was built there on site. From the tables and chairs in the restaurant, to the art on the walls, to the cabins themselves–everyone in this family is truly talented.

We took a 4 hour woodworking class and crafted the most beautiful cutting boards. With Gaspart’s help, we chose small pieces of various wood, and used several different machines and techniques to craft these unique treasures. Since I have never used any saw or big piece of machinery before, Gaspart took time to show us how each machine worked as well as how to safely use each one.

With Gaspart’s help, we were able to create such a unique masterpiece that we will be able to cherish forever!
