This workshop focuses on the ancient art of embossing or pressing shapes into metal to create a design. This technique, called repujado, arrived in Mexico during the Spanish colonization.

Mexican and South American artisans have used copper and tin for centuries to produce jewelry and ornamental items and this technique is used today for many popular decorative arts.

Maria Natividad will be teaching the workshop designed for adults and children 8 years and older. The class fee includes materials. Reservations are required by Nov. 3.
