Open Heart Nature Connection Workshops
Herbal Medicine Bundles – Friday 10/27 at 2:00pm
Come play with consciously gathered herbs, crystals, flowers, feathers and other sacred objects to create a medicine bundle blessed with our memories from Hangtown. With the sense of smell being most connected with memory, the scent of the medicine bundle will reconnect us with our memories from the festival after our long journey home and continue to spread the magic we created at Hangtown.
Nature Mandalas and Collages – Saturday 10/28 at 11:00am
A mandala is a concentric shape that represents balance and harmony. In this open-ended art project, we will use natural materials like faerie flower petals, leaves and other treasures from nature to create mandalas or collages. We will explore where our creative energy takes us and drop into a more grounded state of mind.
Fairy & Wizard Wand Making – Sunday 10/29 at 11:00am
Decorate a wand for manifesting magic at Hangtown and beyond! Choose the wooden wand that speaks to you and decorate it to channel your creative energy into art. Whether you feel called to attach crystals, dried herbs, feathers, flowers, yarn, leaves, or beads, we have a diversity of natural materials to manifest your magical dreams and turn wild fantasies into reality!
