Come learn about the tradition of Puerto Rican santo de palo making by contemporary santero artist Eric Saunders. A santo is a wood carving of a saint, often displayed in a church or made for display in someone’s home, and a santero/santera is the artist who carves the wood sculptures. Following a brief history of the long tradition, audience members will learn to make their own soap santos!
