THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL A LATER DATE. FULL DETAILS TO FOLLOW 🙂
We will explore the symbolism of the webbed Dream Catcher and Sacred Hoop and learn simple processes of threading, wrapping and binding to enable us to create a personal Dream Catcher or Sacred Hoop from natural found objects, bones, shells and re-cycled beads. As well as creating a beautiful object of personal significance, this day will provide the opportunity to connect more deeply to yourself and nature within a held space that will include reflection and sharing.
We will explore how objects can find us, rather than us find them, when we are open and receptive to the natural world. What we create can then become a gateway between our inner an outer worlds, bringing us more deeply into contact with who we are and what we need at this present moment. There will be an extensive selection of natural materials provided and we will also go gathering at Lochen Park or Portobello Beach nearby. You are also welcome to bring any favourite natural materials you have collected elsewhere. No previous making experience necessary.
Please bring lunch to share and layer up in warm, waterproof clothing for gathering outside

This is one of a series of Wild Making Workshops run by Jenny (Damoon) Smith. The workshops fall close to a significant time in the natural calendar and are designed to provide a re-wilding, creative experience, that draws on and connects us more deeply to ourselves and the natural world. When we fully connect on an inner level, we create the potential for alchemy, growth and change in the outer.
Jenny has a degree in Fine Art from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art (1993) and qualified as a Shamanic Practioner with Twobirds Cunningham in Inverness (2017). Jenny has been practicing Serene Reflection meditation for 20 years and dancing 5 Rhyhms for 7. She holds space in a deep, intuitive and playful way which draws on all of the above and whatever else she is guided to do in the moment.
