“If you cast your burden on me,I shall surely bear it. – Sai Baba”


SSP Annual Ganesha Clay Molding workshop will be held on September 4th, 2021.



Workshop for kids to make Lord Ganesha idol using home ingredients. Instructor will help in every step of the way for making Lord Ganesha idol. As a tradition, idols of Lord Ganesh are worshiped and are immersed in lakes, rivers or wells.

Idol making is an art that is passed on from generation to generation. Idols made with natural ingredients are preferred over the painted ones as they are made with artificial clay. Using natural ingredients is also better for the environment. In continuing with our tradition, Shirdi Sai Parivaar will host “Virtual Sri Ganesh Idol Making Workshop” on Saturday, Sep 4th 2021

The workshop this year will be virtual and conducted using common house hold items like Atta / Maida for making Ganesh idol and also can be decorated with Pulses / Cloves etc.

Please make the dough ready for making Ganesh idol a day before. Here are instructions for making dough.

1. Maida / All Purpose Flour – 2 Cups
2. Boiling Water – ½ Cup
3. Salt – 1cup
4. Oil (any cooking oil) – 2tsp
5. Lemon Juice – 2 tsp

1. Take a bowl, mix Maida, Salt, Oil & Lemon juice
2. Add boiling water little by little and mix with spoon
3. Once it is cool, knead the dough to a smooth ball
4. Store in an airtight container.

Note: You can prepare this up to 24 hours in advance. Make sure dough should be hard like clay not soft. If you have allergies you can use play dough or clay from your back yard or a craft store.
