Operation ARTS foundation and The town of Edmonston present “Popotillo Workshop!” This will be a free event on Sunday, April 24th, from 4-6 pm. Traditional folk artist Breanne “Cari” Carlson of Sepia Rainbow Studio, from Chicago, will teach this workshop. For those who do not know, “Popotillo” is a nearly-lost Mesoamerican artform of fiber-wax mosaic. It consists of creating colorful images by using wild grass or natural fibers of “Mijo” over any design. These fibers go through different coloring processes and are glued to a base using beeswax or Campeche wax. Donations are suggested at $10; ages 5 and up are welcome. This event will be located at Veterans Park, located at the intersection of Decatur Street And Taylor Road, Edmonston, MD, 20781. This event is sponsored by The Town of Edmonston and La Fondita’s, thank you so much for your contribution to bringing this workshop to life!
