The Collaborative Piñata

Join us for a conversation on La Piñata Colaborativa [The Collaborative Piñata] and a pinata workshop with Dignicraft, and Purepecha master artisans Raul Guzman and Eduviges Solorio. 

The Collaborative Piñata is an ongoing project with with the community of Purepecha aritsans who have emigrated from their ancestral land on the island Janitzio, Michoacan to Rosarito, Baja California. Many Purepecha families living near the US-Mexico have become expert piñata makers for a US-based market, as a livelihood.
