Make a mini Día de los Muertos shrine at the library Nov. 2
–Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a celebration in which family and friends gather to remember those who have passed away and to help support their spiritual journey by creating altars that include photos of loved ones, possessions that belonged to them, and some of their favorite foods, along with symbolic sugar skulls and marigolds. On Saturday, November 2, beginning at 10:30 a.m., join the Paso Robles Library to create miniature Day of the Dead shrines to honor loved ones.
The shrines will feature a “sugar” skull drawing (or bring a picture of your loved one if you prefer), beads and sequins to represent flowers, and a heart (el Corazón) to symbolize your love for the deceased. You are welcome to bring any other small items meaningful to you (no bigger than 1” high) to include as you remember and honor your loved ones.
Space is limited, registration is required. This class is for ages 16+. Family groups are welcome, however, due to the nature of the tools and materials used, children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
The Paso Robles City Library is located at 1000 Spring Street and is open Monday – Friday 10-8, and Saturday 10-5. For more information on library programs and events, call (805) 237-3870 or visit www.prcity.com/library.
