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.


These classes will take place in the Dill Pickle Coop Community Space

    We enjoyed this class very much. There was nice variety of supplies and decorations, a good amount of work space and the instructor was very informational on the topic which was Dia De Los Muertos. She was very friendly as well and my kids were very comfortable talking with her and asking questions.

    My daughter (12) and her two friends loved the class. The teacher was wonderful and super nice. Location was great because after they did the skulls, my daughter and her friends walked around, got coffee, shopped for a bit, then returned to pick up their skulls. I highly recommend, great value!
