Aiko Cuneo gave a wonderful workshop at Ruth's Table ruthstable.org this last Saturday. It was a workshop making Ofrenda's which are alters dedicated and to celebrate the spirit of loved ones who have passed. This Mexican tradition lives on in California. Aiko provided guidance and tons of materials to make these below. We all had a great time.
|My grandson Mile's Ofrenda for Poppy, his great grandfather,
and for Hamy, his first pet who lasted for one week.
|Monica Lee's, AIR of Ruth's Table, for her sister and friends: incomplete.
|This is mine for the ole man - branches, natural plywood, cactus, beer caps, sea shells, plants,
Japanese origami and fan.
|Earl's for his family who lived on a Missouri farm.
