Day of the Dead is a holiday that is celebrated in Mexico and other parts of Latin America on November 1 and 2. It serves to celebrate the lives of loved ones who have passed on. Sugar Skulls are made to decorate the ofrendas, or alters that are creatively designed and decorated as a kind gesture to honor the deceased.
We are excited to present the following workshops celebrating the Day of the Dead. Patricia Perez is teaching the workshops.
