Monumental Piñatas: Make-It-Yourself Piñata! (Adults only)
Okay, are you ready to make a Piñata?! 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. This series of two classes is open to only SIX participants, so sign up soon!
ADULTS ONLY. We will be serving wine and snacks for participants.
The class will take place on TWO CONSECUTIVE FRIDAYS: August 3, 2018 and August 10, 2018.
All proceeds from ticket sales will go to support Tuleyome’s Certified California Naturalist program, which teaches members of the public to become certified as naturalists in California.

Instructor: Mary K. Hanson, Certified California Naturalist, Director of Special Projects at Tuleyome.
Your Mission, Should You Decide to Accept It:
Before the Classes Start: Imagine what kind of piñata you want to create. Will it be an insect? A wild animal? Your pet? Yourself? You decide. And if you have reference photos you’d like to bring with you, make sure you have those, too.
On Day One (August 3, 2018): Mary will supply you with the materials and know-how to create a piñata based on your chosen subject. 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 (August 10th).
On Day Two (August 10, 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).
