Take Home Kit: Repujado Art
Dating back to the 12th century, Repujado, also known as metal embossing and Hojalata, is the craft of pushing, working or making a three dimensional relief in metal to give it an embossed look. Using recycled materials, learn how you can make your own Repujado artwork in honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month. In the kits, the Library will supply pencils, markers, and cardboard. You will need to supply a 12 ounce aluminum can (like a soda can), scissors, tape, and your imagination! As provided materials can be shared, we ask that registration be limited to one kit per household.
This event is made possible by a donation from the Friends of Queen Anne’s County Library.
When registering for this event please indicate which library branch, Centreville or Kent Island, you prefer to pick your kit up from. You will be notified when your kit is ready for pickup at your requested branch. All kits will be ready for pickup by the program date. Video tutorials will be posted to the Queen Anne’s County Library Facebook and YouTube channels the morning of the program event. Each kit will also contain a printed instruction sheet with directions on finding the video tutorials. If you have any questions, please call the library at 410-758-0980 or 410-643-8161 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
