Event description

Description

Autumn is a time of year that brings about closure. It is also a time of celebrating the end of the growing season...harvest time. It is a time of honoring the dead in many cultures, as well. Come to Rose Cottage on Friday October 20th to create a one of a kind miniature retablo shrine. This type of shrine is typical of the Spanish culture and Latin America where ancestors and those that came before us are honored in wonderful artwork and celebrations. This is a great opportunity to reflect and connect with the life of a loved one by making this beautiful keepsake.

You will need to bring a photo of a loved one that you would like to honor. The photo should be no larger than 3x3 inches or one that can be cut down to fit inside of a 3x3 inch altoid style tin. The rest of the supplies will be available for making your mini retablo.
