As well as being very beautiful, jewellery made from the natural world, can connect us more deeply to the element we are wearing, strengthening our inner relationship to it. Shells connect us to the element of water. Stones, plants and twigs to the earth. Feathers to air and the colour red and orange to fire. We will explore simple processes of threading, plaiting, wrapping and binding, discovering how repetitive, creative processes can be a form of meditation and how the intention of the maker, can feed into that which is made.
We will start with a sharing circle and then gather natural materials from Tyninghamme Woods and Beach to work with. We will explore the way natural objects have a way of finding us, rather than us finding them. You are welcome to bring any favourite natural materials you have found elsewhere. All other materials and jewellery fastenings provided. No previous making experience needed.
Please bring lunch to share and a flask of something warm to drink. As this workshop is close to Beltane, we will have a fire to sit and make around. I will also have my campervan to take refuge in if necessary and to make warm drinks and heat food in. Please layer up in warm, waterproof clothing.
