Workshops on paper mosaic and bookmark-making featuring the National Ethnographic Collection at the National Museum of Anthropology

May 19-20, 2022

Through an online workshop, Ms. Corinne Garcia, a multimedia artist, designer, and cultural worker from the University of the Philippines-Diliman, will teach the participants how to use basic shapes for pattern-making, and help them understand how small parts make a more intricate or complex design. Patterns of selected textiles from the NEC will be used as visual references.

This will be held via Zoom on 19 May 2022, Thursday, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM.  It will be limited to 100 participants, but will also be streamed on NMP’s official Facebook and YouTube accounts.  

Online participants must prepare the following materials for the workshop: scrap paper (magazines), colored papers, scissors, glue, 1/4 illustration board/cardboard, and dry coloring materials (colored pencils/crayons).
