Ruben Puertos, also known as Boris Yeye Bits, from Mexico will be leading this papier-mâché course and demonstrating techniques for making La Catrina, a central figure in the Mexican Day of the Dead Celebrations.
Since arriving in New Zealand in 2014 Ruben has been actively involved in teaching and creating sculptural work for the annual Day of the Dead celebration in Wellington.
The workshop will be split over 2 weekends.
The first workshop introduces techniques for creating wire frameworks and covering them with papier-mâché.
In the next workshop the following weekend attendees will paint and finish their creations.
