Paint and Sip: Alebrijes

We are back in Tlayudona with Alex and our favorite alebrije-painting family from the village of Tilcajete for this workshop.

You´ll get the basics–color, design, and some anecdotal information about the process that transforms copal into a woodcarving. This experience will launch directly into the practical side of this craft as you paint your piece. You’ll also get to sip delicious local coffee or mezcal while you paint!

This Paint & Sip: Alebrije workshop is hands on, although it’s prefaced by a brief presentation about this art form.

One of our master painters from the Velasco Sosa family in Tilcajete will guide you as you choose your hand-carved piece and immerse yourself in the creative process of transforming the sculpture into an alebrije.

Course includes:

  • Oaxacan Coffee and/or Mezcal and cookies
  • Paint, brushes, smock, and any other materials necessary to paint your alebrije
  • Your choice of a 3-5 inch alebrije
  • Instruction by a master alebrije -maker from Tilcajete
  • A print-out of patterns/colors to guide you while you paint
  • Spanish/English translation

We can´t wait to receive you!

This event will utilize our Covid Protocol and conform with Tlayudona´s protocol measures. It is held in Tlayudona (M. Bravo #210 C, inside of the Plaza San Cristobal)
