In the workshop, 12 participants joined Isabel at her home studio to co-create wild altars in the form of light sculptures. After the workshop, participants took their altars home to place in their chosen ecological environments. Participants learned the process of creating these small wax sculptures and dedicated their altar to a new eco-ritual they hoped to enact.
