When you think of Mexican crafts, the first thing that comes to mind is color: vibrant reds, blues, greens and yellows appear in pottery, flowers and dolls. Projects include: Mosaic Bead Pottery - The pottery of Mexico is beautiful. Here we start with a clay pot, wonderful beads, and a unique grout to make a mosaic design; Worry Dolls - Banish your worries with miniature dolls that you can individualize. Sticks, thread scraps, and little bits of yarn are all you need; Paper Blooms - These flowers are so festive and bright, you'll think they're real. Create giant blooms from a rainbow of tissue paper; Fiesta Doll - Color plays an important role in the designs of Mexico, and this festive doll on a Styrofoam base looks ready to go dancing; PiƱata Basket - Straw raffia and plastic canvas are the base for a colorful basket ready to fill with your favorite candies; Hands-On Project - "You Make It Expo" and 4H crafts. 02/07DE PI 30 min.
