FREE EVENT! Mexican Textile Slide Show by Sheri Brautigam
Trunk show opens at 6:30pm and the slide presentation around 7:15pm.
Bella Frida is thrilled to have Sheri Brautigam in town for a slide show presentation on the diversity of traditional textiles being created in Mexico. Sheri will also bring items from her travels that are for sale. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the world of indigenous textile art.
Come early and try on beautiful huipiles from Chiapas and Oaxaca as well as learn how to tie a REBOZO – the signature Mexican accessory shawl.
