Event Details

Workshop for kids to make Lord Ganesha idol using natural clay; Instructor and volunteers 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 clay are preferred over the painted ones as they are made with artificial clay. Natural clay is better for the environment.

The event was held in the Multipurpose Room at the Shirdi Sai Center.   Children above 6 years are welcome to join the workshop to create their own Lord Ganesh idol with natural clay. Instructor and volunteers will help with each step of the activity. All the materials will be provided and workshop is free.
