Dia de los Muertos Ofrenda Workshop with Araceli Cruz
This workshop will introduce you to Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), a Mexican holiday to gather and remember those who have passed away. A very important part of this holiday is the Ofrenda, an altar created to commemorate your loved ones. Time will be spent creating a special Ofrenda wall hanging to honor, celebrate, and showcase your ancestors, beloved family members, friends, and pets who have passed on. Your wall hanging will be made entirely of handmade and decorative papers, using a combination of folding techniques and hand sewing. Your finished piece will feature shadow box frames for displaying photographs and mementos and include personalized adornment.
All materials are provided. Please bring a selection of personal photographs and small mementos to showcase in your finished piece.
