Delray Artisan Summer Workshop: Imaginary Creature

Instructor: Kelsey Joyce, Date/Time: Saturday, June 10 from 9am-12pm. Cost: $50 Del Ray Artisans member / $60 Non-member; plus a $15 Supply Fee. Class size: 4-10 participants. (Register by midnight on June 7). Learn how to design and build a sculpture of an original imaginary creature in the style of Mexican folk art alebrijes. Alebrijes were created by Pedro Linares Lopez, a Mexican cartoneria artisan who created Papier-mâché figurines that he coined alebrijes after imagining them in a fever dream. Alebrijes are creatures that consist of features that represent multiple creatures and the four elements of nature. Dragons are great alebrije because they have all four elements of nature: air represented in their wings, fire represented in their flames, land represented in their legs, and water represented in their ability to swim.
