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.

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. La calavera es un símbolo de la muerte, lo único seguro en la vida. Drop in but give yourself an hour. Open to all ages if accompanied by an adult. $8
