Piñata-Making Workshop: October 11th

October 11, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Beginning on Austin Museum Day and continuing every Sunday until the festival, Mexic-Arte Museum is proud to host local piñata artisans Monica and Sergio Lejarazu for a total of 5 Sugar Skull Float Workshops for the general public . Using papier-mâché, Monica Lejarazu and Museum educators will guide the public in the creation of sugar skull piñatas, inspired by the tradition of Calaveras (“skulls”) in Dia de los Muertos, which have been used in Mexico since the 17th Century. During the workshops, Lejarazu will build a grand sugar skull float to be featured in the Viva la Vida parade. All artwork can be used alongside the sculpture in the Viva la Vida parade, as exhibited in the Piñata Graveyard on festival grounds. Participation is free and open to the public. Materials will be provided.
