These workshops are focused around the Mexican tradition of Dia de los Muertos which is a national holiday in Mexico held on November 1st of every year. Dia de los Muertos (DDLM), or the Day of the Dead, is a traditional holiday in Mexico when deceased friends and family members are remembered and celebrated. It is a poignant time, both solemn and joyous, with colorful artistic traditions, pageantry, and whimsy despite the sobering subject. Dia de los Muertos is a joyful remembrance in which death is recognized as a natural part of the cycle of life.

September

Day of the Dead Sugar Skull Creations

Saturday, September 17th   11am-1pm
Instructor: Ericha Kemm

Work hands on in creating your own keepsake. Sugar art was brought to the New World in the 17th Century and over time became a Mexican tradition of creating molded sugar angels, sheep and sugar skulls. The sugar skulls would be made in memory of a loved one and placed on the ofrenda (altar) within the home. Sugar skulls reflect the folk art style of big happy smiles, sparkly tin and glittery adornments and colorful icing.  Each person will leave with 3 sugar skulls. Space is limited. You can reserve your space by paying through our PayPal link provided.
