Arts and Crafts of Mexico, Past and Present – a lecture by Chloe Sayer

January 10, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Arts and crafts remain an essential part of Mexican life. After the Spanish conquest of 1521, the raw materials, techniques and art styles of Europe merged with those of the New World. Drawing on skills inherited from Aztec, Maya and Spanish predecessors, makers bring a modern vision to ancient traditions. Exquisite textiles, silver jewellery, wooden dance-masks, imaginative toys and fine pottery are still used in many regions. Chloƫ Sayer has made collections for the British Museum. She also owns an extensive range of Mexican folk art, and is happy (if travel arrangements allow) to display examples when she lectures.
