Saturday Sculpture Workshop: Oaxaca Marionettes with Megan Basaldua

Saturday, June 23, 2018

12:00 p.m.3:00 p.m.

Travel with us to Oaxaca, Mexico for the day to create alebrije marionettes from recycled materials! Alebrijes are colorfully patterned, never-before-seen creatures that appeared in artists’ dreams and were later carved in wood for remembrance. This is a chance for participants to bring to life their own creations, whether it is an imaginary friend, a creature from a dream, or a new combination of animals you’ve always wanted to see!

Please note: If arriving in a group of 10 or more, please contact us the week prior to your visit by calling (718) 956-1819.
