The Simple Grace of Personal Shrines

Deborah Milosevich
9:00 - 4:30
Sun April 21

[back to quicklinks]
$ 185  

Shrines have been created in many cultures throughout the world and for various reasons including secular and religious or as memorials. A shrine is a receptacle for sacred relics or items of importance.
As an artist, you will be taking a bit more freedom with the definition of a shrine. These small but powerful assemblages will be constructed on a colorful collaged wooden block of wood and adorned with precious objects and secret words. Your shrine will celebrate and bless what is dear to you-your home, studio, or a friend.
