Rose Ann Hall Designs

Mexico

Rose Ann Hall Designs (RAHD) is an artisan workshop in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, established in 2007 with the goal of resuscitating the traditional craft of glass carving (grabado). In addition to technical skills training, RAHD provides educational and life skills programs to its small cadre of artisans, including several with physical disabilities who had never earned an income before. All RAHD’s elegantly carved work is done on recycled glass, breathing new life into discarded material and providing dignified, empowering work to artisans in an area of Mexico where skilled jobs at living wages are scarce.
