People of all ages participated in a ceramic menorah, dreidel and candle making workshop Sunday at the Everson Museum in the Danial Family Education Center.

The workshop was featured during the museum’s “Festival of Trees and Light,” which runs through Dec. 17. The items crafted during the workshop were made of clay, decorated with colorful glazes and baked in a kiln. Artist Nancy Modlin Katz, of East Syracuse, taught the workshop.

In Yiddish, dreidel is the word for top, the center piece of the spinning game that is played during the festival of Hanukkah. The Hanukkah menorah is a nine-branch candelabra used to celebrate the festival of Hanukkah.
