Description

**You can get to the workshop any time from 11am to 2pm**

Las Posadas "The Inns” religious festival celebrated in Mexico between December 16 and 24. Each evening during the festival, a small child dressed as an angel leads a procession through the streets of their neighborhood. The procession is primarily made up of children dressed in silver and gold robes carrying lit candles and images of Mary and Joseph riding a donkey. Adults, including musicians, follow the procession, which visits selected homes and asks for lodging for "Joseph and Mary". Traditionally, the procession is always refused lodging, though the hosts often provide refreshments. At each stop, passages of scripture are read and Xmas carols are sung and, at the conclusion of the posada, children break open piñatas filled with candy, toys, and, occasionally, money.

In celebration of the posadas we will host a DIY donkey piñata pillow workshop.

Our mini piñata pillow measures approx 8.5" L x 7.5" W

We'll provide everything you need for this pillow... kit includes: polyester stuffing, thread, and felt parts.

Workshop is intended for ages 10 to 144. Younger kids must be accompanied by a parent.

Price is for 1 kit.
