Make a traditional or not-so traditional Flower Crown to wear for Sonoma's city-wide Dia de los Muertos celebrations and processions. Participants will learn to make Mexican paper flowers of a variety of colors and shapes and arrange and fasten them together to make colorful botanical crowns in the spirit of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. For Kahlo, the flower crown became an evocative symbol of the naturalism of her native Mexico, which was in part inspired by her Coyoacán garden and traditional Mexican dress. Her signature floral crowns, serve as a beautiful counterpoint and complement to the solemn meditations and beauty surrounding Day of the Dead.

This workshop is the 5th in a series of 5 cultural artistic workshops leading up “DIA SONOMA” Sonoma’s city-wide celebration of Dia de los Muertos Saturday, November 2nd from 12:30-8:00pm. Sign up for all 5!

This workshop has been supported by a generous grant from the Sonoma County Vintner’s Foundation.
