This class was great! Highly recommended if your into fashion or learning a new skill. Everything was explained very well, and understandable speaking English and only some Spanish I was able to learn the necessary technique. Very pleased with this experience!

Mayra was a wonderful teacher, super knowledgeable about Mexican embroidery techniques in general and the pepenado technique in particular. Mayra's instructions were clear, and she was a patient teacher. The four hours flew by! I learned a lot and it made my trip to Mérida! I also especially enjoyed having the chance to see her art and learn more about her process as a textile artist.

Mayra was super knowledgeable and an amazing teacher. It was inspiring to hear about her different experiences as an artist and she showed us some of the work she has done in many mediums. She shared stories about the culture of history of embroidery and made us all feel welcome as we learned the craft. Amazing experience!

If you are interested in textile crafts and looking for an interesting way to spend a few hours to get a behind-the-scenes look at Merida's contemporary craft scene, this is the perfect workshop! I had such a nice time learning this beautiful technique from Mayra- It gives you an appreciation for the time that it takes artisans to create their pieces! Mayra was patient, knowledgable and helpful with our group, and had some of her own work on display in the her studio- which was beautiful and inspiring! She gave us a great overview of the history of the technique, showed us examples and had resources there on hand. This workshop is all in Spanish, which was wonderful for me to practice my conversational Spanish, but since you are busy stitching during the workshop, there is no pressure to talk if you don't want. I loved that! It was great to also meet the other participants of the workshop and see others who have similar interests in common with me. OVERALL EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE! Thanks Mayra!
