Retablo

Iv'e always loved Retablos, A little shrine made by hand, often from humble found materials. A portable portal to hope and protection, and even though I gave up my catholic faith when I was a child, as all lapsed catholics know, it never really goes away. That love of ritual sticks like glue.   So to indulge my interest, and memory, I'm teaching a class in retablo construction at castle in the air this fall. not exactly traditional methods but very accessible and transferable to any use you wish. here's my sample.
