October Craft of the Month: Sugar Skulls

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday for celebrating and honoring those who have passed. One tradition includes building ofrendas (altars) honoring the deceased using brightly colored skulls, marigolds, and possessions of the departed. Instead of sugar, our skulls are paper mache, but we invite you to decorate them in the spirit of Dia de los Muertos using paint, glitter, gems, flowers and other adornments. La calavera es un símbolo de la muerte, lo único seguro en la vida. 

All ages are welcome if accompanied by an adult. $8 

More information about the history and significance of this event is available at The Workspace, and we encourage you to look for celebrations around the world on November 1 & 2.

Walk in during open hours:
Monday -Friday 2-10pm
Saturday 10am-4pm
