Paper Flower Marigolds for Día de los Muertos
October 19, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm MST$45.00 – $55.00
Marigolds (Cempazuchitl) are a staple of Día de los Muertos ofrendas (altars). Their vibrant colors and strong scents are said to attract souls of the departed back to the land of the living. Sandy Villegas of Luna’s Paper Designs will teach you step-by-step how to create marigold flowers and leaves from crepe paper to include in your own altar or fall decoration. All supplies are provided. Tuesday’s workshop is slightly longer and participants will create two marigolds. Less time to spare? Sign up for Thursday’s workshop where you will learn to craft one marigold. This outdoor workshop will be held on the patio outside of the Main Gallery. Participants are invited to view our Día de los Muertos Exhibition for inspiration. Masks are required indoors if you choose to visit the exhibition.
