MAKE: Halloween

October 20, 2022 @ 5:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Museum of Craft and Design

Collaborate with artists and makers, explore unique themes, and re-think materials through creative design projects– all happening after-hours in the MCD galleries!

MAKE gets spooky with an other-worldly look at MCD’s exhibitions and a peek of the upcoming LIGHTFAST special performance! Make a ghostly self portrait in an etched-glass mirror, create a Haunted Heimat pumpkin diorama, and design a glowing Lost Soulmates charm bracelet made of forgotten memories—all inspired by Iris Eichenberg: Where Words Fail.

Step through Robyn Horn: Material Illusions and explore the portals opened up by Dia de los Muertos ofrendas with artists and librarians from SFPL Mission Branch! Craft the elements to help usher your loved ones to the other side, including carved soap skulls, personalized pillar candles, polymer mini-food, pyrography papel picado banners, and tissue paper flower bunches.

PLUS don’t lose your head over DIY Hellish Haberdashery and sign up to win an MCD Membership to insure your continued FREE entry to future MAKE events!
