Arubaglassceramics is just the kind of community-driven, culture-focused hidden gem AFAR travelers hope to stumble upon. The non-profit sells local art and teaches workshops with a focus on traditional techniques. Their glassblowing, glass bead making, kiln casting and ceramics courses can be done in an afternoon at a reasonable price. The ceramics course in particular focuses on ancient techniques and if you take a trip to the Archeological museum after you'll see what you've learned reflected in ancient artifacts. If you don't have time to take a class, stop by and pick out something created by a local artisan.
