Ofrenda Workshops 2015: Thursday September 24, 6-9 PM and Saturday September 26, 10am-1 PM

and Florida Day of the Dead Presents

Day of the Dead 2015~OFRENDA WORKSHOPS
Offrendas are an essential part of the Day of the Dead celebrations. The word ofrenda means offering in Spanish. They are similar to traditional altars. Ofrendas are a way to honor the memory of loved ones that have passed away. These cultural spaces are decorated with pictures, items that recall the loved one, fruit, flowers, candles, and embellishments.

Before beginning our creative work, a presentation about the spiritual and symbolic meaning of Ofrendas will be presented by Curators from the Florida Day of the Dead celebration, Tara Chadwick, Luis Rodriguez and Jim Hammond. You will also have the opportunity to have your ofrenda on display at the
Fort Lauderdale Historical Museum for the month long Ofrenda Exhibition from October 4th through November 2nd on the Day of the Dead.

This workshop is designed for adults and children 6 to 18.
