The original PATHMAKER huipil, mixed media

Workshop organizer Rebecca Brooks is a passionate traveler, a deeply inspiring people gatherer, and a bubble of loving energy who I'm happy to call a friend. We met this year at the home of dear friend and former Pathmaker huipil workshop participant, Patricia Smith.

Rebecca was here in San Miguel presenting an art journal workshop with Orly Avineri. As part of their own San Miguel journey, they invited me to join them for a gathering at Patricia's house, and there the story of this workshop began. We hit it off so well, it was decided that we should stir the cauldron together and whip up some magic.

 "The Way of the Huipilista" is scheduled for next March, during Semana Santa in San Miguel. She invites you to come away with her, this time to play in the fields of contemporary huipils with me as your guide and facilitator. We'll also be offering a private guided tour of my solo exhibition "HILOS" (Threads) at El Nigromante Bellas Artes.

Check out Rebecca's post here for info on

I hope you'll consider joining us. Space is limited, for San Miguel residents as well as travelers to our fabulous city, so early booking is encouraged.
