Hp1dE8ZCogpbQvntzQJvWmqqgqf14VWsNm1fJZbq.pngIn this workshop you will create your own Alebrije directly from the Oaxacan workshop of the best Alebrije makers in the country: Jacobo y Maria Angeles.
Alebrijes are magical Mexican creatures made popular in the 1930s by Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. They are whimsical animals painted in bright colors that represent dreams and imagination. Some are made of wood and others of paper mache and cardboard. Every year huge versions of these creatures parade down the streets of Mexico City in the annual Alebrije Parade during the Day of The Dead festivities.


**We'll be hosting multiple sessions of 30 minutes each. Space is limited. **
