Event Overview

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.

Dia de los Muertos has always been my favorite holiday. I have always been fascinated with the beauty of the celebration and one of my favorite aspects of the holiday are the sugar skulls. I have been making sugar skulls for years and love to share my love of sugar skulls and Dia de los Muertos.

    I loved this class! It was so interesting learning about the holiday of Dia de los Muertos, the significance of the sugar skulls, and how they are made. Decorating our own sugar skulls was so much fun as we got creative and listened to rock n roll records. There was even fresh pico de gallo made from the tomatoes in her garden! I would definitely recommend this class, and any others by this teacher.

    The Mexican Sugar Skulls class with Norma was excellent! This class provides you with the opportunity to experiment with your creativity, and no prior skills/experience is required!!! The class is designed in order for you, the student, to truly express yourself creatively and experience the meaning behind the Day of the Dead/Dia De Los Metros. Norma makes the class very enjoyable, while providing historical background information regarding the worldwide holiday. This is a must take class!

    There were so many options and examples available, it really got my creative juices flowing. I absolutely love my calaveras de azucar and have them prominently displayed on my desk!
