The Mission is our neighborhood, and Dia de los Muertos is a huge holiday here. It's time to celebrate!
Within the traditions of the day, sugar skulls play a meaningful role, representing deceased loved ones who living celebrants want to honor. Learn how to make your own sugar skulls at this hands-on workshop with Michele Simons from the Sugar Skull Gallery. After she walks you through the making and decorating processes, each participant will decorate two sugar skulls using all kinds of traditional and not-so traditional materials which are all included.
See some of Michele's work on this short documentary "The Making of Sugar Skulls" from KQED's Kitchen Sisters:
