Join CLCA & the Makers Lab for a Sugar Skull Decorating Workshop! October 28, 2022

Día de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a festive holiday celebrated in November throughout Mexico that celebrates the life of loved ones who have passed. Alfeñiques (decorated sugar skulls) are used to adorn elaborate altars that invite our loved ones to return and help to light their way home. This event is in preparation for the Day of the Dead reception to be held at the UCSF Library the week of November 2. Additional art supplies will be provided for decorating altars.

Join us in the Parnassus Kalmanovitz Library to learn about the holiday and decorate alfeñiques with us! 

Please note we have scheduled two sugar skull decorating sessions. The sessions will be held at 12 pm and then again at 4 pm. Please register accordingly.
