Title: Sugar Skull Making Workshop: 1 Session
Instructor: Mela Delgado
Dates: October 27
Day & Time: Sunday, 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm
Description: On a Day of The Dead altar (ofrenda) sugar skulls represent a departed soul. Many times, the name of the departed is written onto the sugar skull’s forehead to honor the return of the spirit of a loved one. They are also decorated with colorful icing, tin paper and sparkly adornments.
In this one-session workshop, I will teach you the history of The Day of the Dead. We will make sugar skulls from scratch, and then decorate them. By the end of the class you will be able to take your decorated skull, plus take a freshly made white sugar skull to decorate at home and hopefully oﬀer it to your altar.
