Community Workshop: Mexican Sugar Skulls

  • Dill Pickle Food Co-op 2746 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

Hosted by MosaicoArte Chicago, family friendly, $5

Learn about the history of the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), a festive holiday celebrated in November throughout Mexico that celebrates the life of loved ones who have passed. Sugar skulls are used to adorn elaborate altars that invite our loved ones to return and help to light their way home. 

In this class you will learn to make and decorate your own sugar skull. Each student will learn to make the sugar mixture and frosting, use molds to form the sugar skull and then have fun personalizing each one.
