Day of the Dead Mosaic Altars
In Mexico it is believed that on the Day of the Dead it is easier for the souls of the departed to visit the living. People build private altars holding the favorite foods and beverages, as well as photos and memorabilia, of the departed. Come learn more about this ritual and make an altar for your home. This class teaches you how to work with and nip glass and ceramic tiles. You will learn design basics as you create your altar. Leave the completed mosaic with us to do the messy cementing and grouting and come back later to pick up your completed masterpiece in time for your very own Day of the Dead ritual.
This class meets for 2 consecutive Wednesday evenings but some students will also choose to come in during studio hours during the intervening week, or take material home to work on at home, depending on the complexity of the design.
