Come make a calavera in celebration of Día de Muertos!
No ofrenda is complete without a richly decorated calavera. And Artist Ivonne Pinto-García will show us how to make one with the help of generous folks from the Philadelphia Folklore Project. With the proper care, calaveras can last for years and become part of your annual Day of the Dead decorations.
In this bilingual workshop (presented in Spanish), participants will learn about the traditions of Día de Muertos and how to make sugar skulls as everyone—both in-person and virtual—decorates pre-made and dried skulls (virtual attendees can arrange to pick up at the Parkway Central Library the day before by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org). Afterwards, you'll have the one you created during the class to decorate too! This workshop is open to teens and adults.
