Ceremonial artistry is an ancient and alchemical practice that integrates the mind, the body and the spirit. Through powerful intention, skill and divine inspiration, the artist breathes life into his/her creation. Together we will develop the practice of prayerful art-making and build a tool of healing for your personal practice.
Bird feathers have been traditionally used for blessing, healing and purification by people from nations across this planet. Each person will create their own smudge fan and learn the skills that make these sacred tools profound allies.
In this four hour workshop you will learn specific techniques that will enable you to create a unique 2-feather smudge fan. We will develop a sanctified environment that promotes the creation of a sacred tool, and this requires a high level of focus and prayer.
The skills learned in this workshop will enable you to continue on your journey of fan making and empower yourself through artistic exploration.
All materials included. If you have any special items you would like to add, we encourage you to bring them.
