Make your own Evergreen Santa! Over this two-day event (on two consecutive Fridays) Tuleyome’s own piñata-guru Mary K. Hanson will take you through the process of creating and decorating your own handmade piñata that you can use as a holiday decoration or give away as a gift chocked full of love.

Your Mission, Should You Decide to Accept It:
On Day One (September 28, 2018): Mary will supply you with the materials and know-how to create a basic “Santa” piñata. We’ll be starting “from the balloons” up, constructing our forms and covering them with their first layer of papier-mâché. Then you’ll take your forms home with you, along with the materials you’ll need for the second appliance of the papier-mâché.
On Your Own: During the week between the classes, let your piñata form dry completely, then add a second layer of papier-mâché early enough in the week so that it’s dry by Day Two (October 5th). You’ll know if the form is dry enough for decorating if it no longer feels cool to the touch. Note: It’s best to put the second layer on as early in the week as you can so it has sufficient time to dry. If weather permits, put the form outside to dry in the sun.
On Day Two (October 5, 2018): Bring your dry piñata form back with you, and Mary will show you the different techniques you can use to complete it. Tuleyome will supply the tissue paper, construction paper, glue, poster board, and embellishments needed to complete your piñata.
Tuleyome will also supply general snacks, wine and soft drinks at the classes, but you are welcome to bring along your own lunch if you’d like to.
All ticket sales are final. No refunds are given for any reason (unless Tuleyome cancels the class).
