Our project for this workshop is called Totem de Vida ~ Totem of Life, a celebration of life during “Dia de Los Muertos.” Since our workshop coincides with this amazing celebration week, you will have the opportunity to experience all the sites, sounds, colors, smells, costumes and foods that take place during this time.  

Totem de Vida is a collaborative project, each of the four workshop days you will have a different teacher who will instruct you in a new technique that will be used on wooden blocks to comprise your totem.
