Description

Make Your Own Altar Offering Plate

This is a hands-on workshop under the direction of master basket weaver, Joan Carrigan, of Salt Spring Island.


We will be weaving small plates/bowls from dried grasses, sedges, and other locally gathered natural materials. The result will be a shallow open vessel of 5"-8" diameter that will be a beautiful addition to your home altar or décor.

The Spring Equinox is one of the eight sabbats in the pagan Wheel Of The Year. Variousy known as Ostara, Oestre, Easter, Alban Eilir, or the Vernal Equinox, it is a time to celebrate blossoming, potential, re-birth, re-emergence, fertility, inspiration and joy.

We'll begin with a group meditation to help us become aware of our own potential and tune in to the stirrings of new growth within us. Our basket-making will become a manifestation ritual as we weave together the strands of our new plans and visions.

As we gather to work with sacred intention, you'll hear stories and songs related to the mythology of Spring and the Return Of The Goddess to inspire your journey forward.

Around midday, we'll share a light ploughman's lunch, plus salad and quiche. The buffet will look something like:

locally made breads (GF included)
several varieties of local and international cheeses
paté, both meat and veggie options
a variety of local charcuterie
homemade fermented pickles
homemade mustards and condiments
fruit and nuts
homemade quiche (vegetarian option available)
locally grown spring mix and flower blossom salad
sweet tarts and tea cookies

Wine will be provided with lunch and a wide selection of Silk Road teas as well as espresso-based coffees will be served throughout the day.

Eight people maximum.

You are welcome to bring an item to place on the altar, something that reminds you of new beginnings or projects you'd like to seed, something you'd like to be charged with the collective energy of inspiration, creativity and manifestation.
