Etsy Meet & Make Fiber Salon: La Catrina Ornaments with Armani Mondragón
Friday, October 4, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (PDT)
San Jose, CA
Join SF Etsy member Armani Mondragón in celebrating Dia De Los Muertos, Day of The Dead, with this whimsical Catrina ornament. On Dia De Los Muertos (Nov 1-2), we celebrate the life and love of those who have passed on. La Catrina, Lady Dead, reigns supreme at this time. This easy-to-make felt art piece is a wonderful addition to una ofrenda, a shrine... and if you've never made one in honor of those who have gone before, then La Catrina is a good way to begin, yes?
Armani Mondragón is the owner and artist behind Retablos (www.retablos.etsy.com), named after the iconographic Mexican art form. Her work stands on the cusp of Mexican folk art and a dream world of what was, what is, and all the maybes in between.
RSVP required through Eventbrite. Space is limited.
Fiber Salon is a hands-on community craft event hosted the first Friday of each month at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles with support from the Etsy Meet & Make program.
