Story Telling and Mexican Folk Tradition Presentation and workshop by Ramona Garcia.Paper mache is a material that was traditionally used to make dolls and other toys during the time of the Mexican Revolution. This distinctive tradition, although it is struggling to survive, is still alive today in some towns in Mexico. Join us for a unique workshop on the rich Mexican folk tradition of paper mache doll making. Participants will learn the history and custom of the Mexican doll and be introduced to storytelling techniques and designs to make their own doll.
Ramona Garcia is a native of Guanajuato, Mexico, where the art of the paper mache doll is said to have been born. She grew up playing with dolls and other handmade toys and continues to share her love for them through her work and classes that she teaches. She has worked extensively with youth and women using dolls to teach puppet making classes as well as art therapy and expressive arts workshops. Some of her interests include preservation of indigenous art and culture and art therapy.
