“The paper-mache doll is a distinctive traditional craft that became the dear play object and companion for many children in Central Mexico. Today, this tradition is struggling to survive, being kept alive only in the workshops of the few artisans who continue to produce paper-mache dolls, not for monetary gain but for the continuity of this beautiful art. In this single day workshop, you will sew and create your own doll using molded forms, string, embellishments and paint. You will also learn about the history of the paper mache doll as a traditional and indigenous form of art from Mexico as well as its use with practices of art therapy.” 

-Ramona Garcia
