Day of the Dead Mask Workshop!

A ritual known today as Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, has been celebrated for thousands of years in Mexico and parts of the United States as a way of honoring deceased relatives and ancestors. Families build altars in their homes, dedicating them to the dead. They surround these altars with flowers, food, candles and pictures of the deceased.

They don wooden skull masks called calacas and dance in remembrance. Both life and death are honored in this lovely tradition.

Join us to decorate your own Day of the Dead Mask and celebrate those who have gone before!
