    Name: Hands On Activity: Repujado
    Date: June 16, 2017
    Time: 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM MDT
    Event Description:
    In celebration of Western New Mexico University’s Fiesta Latina, come to the Silver City Museum and learn about the metal embossing technique of "Repujado". Learn to emboss, color and decorate, aluminum to create greeting cards and decorate boxes. "Repujado" came to Mexico when the Spanish arrived and colonized the area. It was used by the church to protect the images of their religious icons from candle smoke. Over time it has become a popular craft that has extended from the church and into people’s homes. Mexican and South American artisans have used copper and tin for centuries to produce jewelry and ornamental works.

    Adults and children are welcome. Due to the sharpness of the metal, this activity is open to children ages 8+ with adult supervision. This workshop is free with a $5 suggested donation and registration is encouraged!
