Papel Picado Workshop
Global Hub - 1st Floor Posvar
Sponsored by:
Center for Latin American Studies and Global Hub
See Details

Join the Global Hub and the Center for Latin American Studies in making papel picado in honor of Latinx and Hispanic Heritage Month!

Papel picado, the colorful cut paper banners used for Mexican fiestas, is translated as “minced paper” because it is made by cutting out shapes in a see-through pattern. Come and learn its history and meaning and how to make it! Students will have a chance to display their completed papel picado at our Day of the Dead Altar later in October.

This interactive workshop will be facilitated by Lisa DiGioia Nutini, Owner of Mexico Lindo and Mexican Folk-Art Dealer, and is open to Pitt students, faculty, and staff.

Please register by 5PMET on Friday, October 8th!
