Workshop traditional Mexican Cartonería

Come and make a traditional Mexican cartonería!

The new Intense Mexico exhibition opens on 10 October and to celebrate this, two artists from Mexico come to our Atelier CoBrA to give several workshops there.


In response to the kind invitation of the Mexican Embassy in the Netherlands and the Relatos de Mujeres Group, Elisa Ayala Garza and Josué E. Castro Razo are very much welcome to come together for three days to make cartonerias with the participants. Cartonerias are traditional Mexican figures of papier mâché. On Friday October 11 adults can come and make an “Alebrije”, a fantasy creature that originates in Mexico. Saturday October 12 and Sunday October 13 children from 8 years (possibly together with their supervisors) are welcome to get started.

Participation in the workshop is free, click here to sign up, there are a limited number of places available.

Friday October 11 from 12: 00-16: 00 for adults (16+)
Saturday October 12 and Sunday October 13 from 12: 00-16: 00 for children from 8 years (and parents, if there is room)


This workshop is made possible by the generous contribution of the Mexican Embassy, Aeromexico and Relatos de Mujeres.
