Clay Día de Muertos Workshop at deCordova

Celebrate Día de Muertos by making an ofrenda plate or calaca mask and accompanying small sculptural offerings! Embellish with colorful ceramic colors and perhaps a tribute poem. The work will be glazed with a durable clear glaze and fired so you can celebrate the holiday creatively! Instruction, tools, materials, seating, and work surfaces will be provided during this 1.5-hour family-styled workshop.
