This workshop takes inspiration from Ashon Crawley's Lonely Letters and Respectively, these works explore collectivity, loneliness, mourning and celebration. Altars Made, Altars Unmade sustains these themes, even as it embraces "sense experience." How can altar-making, as an embodied activity, rather than an empty routine or an amplification of dogma, provide a remedy to the numbness characterizing much of our present day?

During the workshop, participants will create their own original altar. All materials will be provided. Spots are limited, registration is required for this event. Masks are required during the workshop.

If tickets are "sold out", please email to join the waitlist.
