CLCA & Makers Lab Present: Papel Picado

Join the Chicano Latino Campus Association & the Makers Lab for a workshop on Papel Picado

Papel picado ("perforated paper", literally "pecked paper") is a traditional folk art from Mexico that involves cutting out intricate patterns on colorful tissue paper. The tissue paper is then glued to a string in a line to form banners which are used as decorations for important festivities throughout the year.

Come and learn about this art form and create your own expression of Mexican Folk art!

No experience necessary, all materials will be provided. Registration required due to capacity limits.
