About the Event
Chony is an award winning Visual Art Teacher, who has taught all ages both Internationally and Nationally.
The 'Mexican Eye' or 'Gods Eye' is a spiritual and votive object made by weaving a design out of yarn / wool upon a wooden cross. In Mexican Culture this is a symbol of protection.
Students will be provided with two small branches, that they will bind together using yarn. From here they will choose coloured wool / yarn that they would like to add to their 'Mexican Eye' weaving. Chony will then teach and support students to weave a Mexican Eye wall hanging that adds colour, vibrancy and 'proection' (as the Mexicans believe) to any wall in your home.
This particular creative workshop is really fantstic with developing fine motor skills, a sense of patience and achievement with how bright and wonderful it looks when it is finished.
