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.

Drop in during open hours. All ages are welcome if accompanied by an adult.
