Papier mâché Crafts with Sandy Luna: Otomi Heart

April 12 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm MST

$75 – $90

Friday | April 12th and 19th | 10am – 1pm | Education Center – Classroom 1

The forms and shapes embroidered into Otomi textiles have ancient roots, dating back even before the rise of the Aztec Empire. According to many stories, these shapes were preserved in prehistoric cave paintings of the Mexican Plateau, giving artists of each generation a template from which to base their designs. “Originally created in Tenango de Doria, Hidalgo, Mexico, Otomi embroidery is said to be inspired by the natural surroundings of Mexico.” It also bears hallmarks of Spanish and Aztec influences, a reflection of the history of Mexico as a country. Sandy Luna from Luna’s Paper Designs LLC will teach you how to recreate one heart using papier mâché paste and paper clay by modeling the heart and making beautiful flowers and leaves with paper clay. You will be able to choose your Otomi design and paint it with acrylic paints to finish your piece. This is a beginner-level class.

This is a two-day class, and all supplies are provided. You can bring snacks and drinks.

$75 for members and $90 for the general public.
