Dia de los Muertos Craft Workshop
Submitted By Myron Freedman
Are you celebrating Dia de los Muertos? Or have you always wanted to find out more about this celebration of the dead? Then join us for a fun, hands-on workshop to create your own Dia de los Muertos shadowbox. Everyone is welcome; adults, children, and families. The program will take place on the actual Day of the Dead, Friday, November 2, at the Pancho Villa Event Center in Hayward.
Oscar Cisneros from Tu Tienda Azteca and Hayward Area Historical Society staff will lead the workshop. All materials ($15 fee) will be provided, but attendees are encouraged to bring small photos to personalize shadowboxes. We will also make Dia de los Muertos inspired magnets. All ages are welcome; children need to be accompanied by an adult. At the end of the day you will take home your own work of art.
This program is a collaboration between the Hayward Area Historical Society, Tu Tienda Azteca, and the Pancho Villa Event Center.
