Making decorations for a Day of the Dead “altar” *

Groupe d’âge

À partir de 10 ans

The workshop begins by lighting copal resin. Subsequently, an explanation of the tradition of Days of the Dead in Mexico is given with its traditional, historical and decorative elements of the altar. Participants will create a model out of cardboard. They will model a small clay skeleton. We will devote the rest of the workshop to the development of this altar-decoration and to sharing around death. At the end of the exercise, all the models are assembled and they can be part of an altar of the dead.
