Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday for celebrating those who have passed. Drawings of Sugar Skulls often include flowers, dots, linear patterns, and other fun elements that can transfer beautifully onto pottery. We will have pattern ideas as well as bisque with pre-printed designs for coloring in. Pick yours up in time for Dia de los Muertos October 31-November 2.

We will show you the basics of painting your piece, and then we will fire it within a week for you to come pick up. Studio fee is $4 for ISU and $5 for public to attend, plus the cost of the bisque you select. Drop in during open hours through October 22. Open to all ages if accompanied by an adult.
