About the event
The beginning of November is a time of honor, celebration and remembrance for departed loved ones in cultures the world over. Some believe this is a time when "the veil between worlds is thin", and that we can be in closer communion with those we have lost.
We will be hosting an altar build to help our local community acknowledge our collective grief and loss, honor our dead and our ancestors, and provide opportunities for healing. Open to all, regardless of your religion or beliefs. Think of this as an art and healing project that's also a rite of passage.
You may drop by the Studio anytime between 11am-6pm, from Tuesday, Nov. 1st through Saturday, Nov. 5th, to bring something for the Community Altar. Suggested objects may include: A meaningful object, work of art, flowers, a votive candle, a photograph of a loved one or pet you have lost, a special piece of jewelry, and so on. Feel free to use your imagination.
You can also make use of our workshop space to create something. We will have a message box on the altar for you to write a message to loved ones, if you wish.
Studio staff will be on hand to check in with you, receive your objects, tend the Altar, and provide technical help with making creative pieces if desired.
Check out our Events page for a Day of the Dead themed craft event on Saturday, November 5th.
Pick up of Altar items will be on Sunday, November 6th, from 12-2pm. If you can't make it during this time, please contact us to make other arrangements by calling:

We will hold items in our Lost and Found box for 30 days. Any items left after this time will be donated to charity, or otherwise disposed of.
