Originally from Mexico, artist Francisco LOZA creates Arte de Estambre, or Pressed Yarn Art, using colorful yarn adhered to wooden surfaces with wax. Currently featured in AVAM’s exhibit “Parenting: An Art Without a Manual,” LOZA’s intricate artworks explore themes of immigration, family, environment and Mexican cultural traditions.

Join us for a special hands-on workshop with LOZA to learn his pressed yarn technique, create your own piece, and be inspired by this unique art form. Space is limited, visit to register.
