In Mexico, calaveras de azúcar, or sugar skulls, are molded and decorated with bright folk art designs to honor the spirits on Dia de los Muertos, November 1st. Their lovely florals and colorful flourishes are a happy way to celebrate and honor loved ones.

Take your pick of hand-silkscreened fabrics, pre-printed with my original sugar skull design. We will choose a palette of floss colors, discuss stitch ideas, hoop up and stitch! Depending on your preferences for heavily embellished or simply stitched, you will either finish up in class or keep going at home. The designs may all start out the same, but everyone will work their own special mojo with line and color, ending up with an original embroidery that can be stretched on canvas, sewn into a pillow, or appliquéd onto a garment.

Six students, one 3.5 hour class.
$50 (includes screened fabric for stitching)

This class meets at Stitch Lab.
