We will spend a day re-wilding and connecting to the natural energy of this time of year. Starting with a sharing circle, we will then gather natural materials from Tyninghamme Woods and Beach and together create a Celtic Wheel to celebrate this time of year, which will embody our individual journey, held in a collective artwork. We will close with a sharing circle (with song, ceremony and sound) to offer to the natural world and receive sustenance from it. There will also be time for creating an individual totem to take home. We will observe social distancing, following government guidelines, throughout the workshop.
Please bring lunch to share and a flask of something warm to drink. If needed, we will have a fire to sit around for the sharing and I will have my campervan, so we can make warm drinks and heat soup up. Please layer up in warm, clothing and bring swimming kit if you would like to swim in the sea. Any additional materials provided. No previous making experience necessary.
11am – 4.30pm
Cost £50 to reserve your place. Numbers will be limited to 8

This is one of a series of Wild Making Workshops planned by Jenny Smith to be run at Tyninghame Beach and Woods in 2020. The workshops are designed to provide a re-wilding, creative experience, that draws on and connects us more deeply to the natural world. When we fully connect on an inner level, we create the potential for alchemy, growth and change in the outer.
