Hand carved reliquaries and shrines hold all that is precious.   
Doors and rusty nails protect the collection of stories, journeys, hopes and dreams secreted inside.

Contained within these assemblages are found objects, handmade books and constructed treasures. During this week you will learn how to carve your own reliquary from timber to hold your most precious memories, stories, hopes and dreams.  A special door adds to the meaning of your reliquary and holds safe your precious objects. Once your reliquary is carved you will learn a range of techniques to form sacred objects for your shrine   A special metal and mica book adds interest and narrative to your piece.
