We will start with a short introduction about Cusco art and syncretism (the fusion of Andean and Western culture). Then, we will present to you the history of the Toritos de Pucará (torito means little bull) and their importance to the local traditions, and we will talk about the purpose of the art collective Totemiq.
Each participant will receive a plain Torito de Pucará made of ceramic, after which it is your turn to start decorating!
Inspired by history, we will start the workshop in which you will learn to work with different materials and techniques, both traditional and contemporary, using thin metal sheets (copper, bronze and aluminium), acrylics, markers, stencils, etc.
In the end, you will have created your own Torito de Pucará which you can take home as a souvenir (if you are staying in Cuzco for the following 24 hours your torito will have enough time to leave the oven, cool and be delivered to you. If not, you will be offered to take another torito from the shelve).
Easy, just go to the booking form (pink box) at the top right corner and select your desired package
The workshop is located at a new residential area outside the city center, but any taxi driver will be able to take you there for about S/. 10 (ten soles)
