OK It is time to sign up for Oaxaca

Wow I am so bad at blogging lately!  I guess the Art Hus is taking all my spare time.  But Mary Colleen and I are still pulling it together to make another art adventure in Oaxaca,  We already have several sign ups.  I am excited to go with old friends and meet some new ones.  Oaxaca always casts it spell over us all and makes the event a life changing experience.

Here are detail:

The Colors of Oaxaca

Dolls, Dolls, Dolls - Workshop Adventure

January 16th  – 23rd 2016

Las Tres Amigas, mixed media artists Syd McCutcheon, Mary Stanley, and tour host Colleen Darling are heading back to the magical city of Oaxaca for another fun-filled workshop and cultural adventure.  The city of Oaxaca, a UNESCO World Heritage site, has so much to offer with its warm friendly people, delicious food, world-renowned artists, colonial architecture, and pre-Colombian ruins.

By ”popular demand” we are going to make dolls, many of you have asked so here it is. The workshop will take its inspiration from the riot of colors that abound in every aspect of life in Oaxaca.  The weaving, embroidery, and folk art inspires our doll designs.  We will use ethnic fabrics to design and dress our dolls.  The dolls can be embellished with beads, ribbon, embroidery and needle felting. and much more .

We will visit the Zapotec town of Teotitlan del Valle, home to over 5000 weavers and visit the oldest market in the Americas, Tlacolula.  On Wednesday we will travel to Etla, home to Quesillo cheese and take a cooking class at renowned cooking school “Seasons of My Heart”. Our time in the colonial city center will include trips to the local markets, diverse museums, and endless opportunities for shopping and ice cream and so much more.
