Enjoy a warm and reflective space in which to create your own unique 3-D diorama, drawing inspiration from memories, ideas, hopes and aspirations. The playful and transformative process will involve upcycling old artworks, curious findings and everyday tiny treasures. This workshop is inspired by the Mexican folk art of retablo, where personal tragedies, life events and heart felt dreams, are transmuted into ‘miracle paintings’, calling upon divine intervention.
