Huichol Traditional Yarn Painting/Pintura Huichol en Hilo Tradicional

The Huichol people, or Wixarrika, as they auto-denominate, are a native group from the region that now encompasses Durango, Zacatecas, Jalisco and Nayarit in México.

They have a long tradition of creating bead, yarn and carved art. Although initially for ceremonial purposes, they now commercialize them, allowing us to enjoy and learn from their design, colors and symbolic significance. In this workshop, each participant will create its own Huichol-inspired yarn paint, following the yarn and wax technique. Presented bilingually in English and Spanish. Registration required.
