Make Your Own Fall Wreath with Juliet Hollifield, Fernseed Floral Manager
Saturday, Oct. 23th, 2021 | 10-11:30am
Summer is over, Mabon has come and gone... now, as darkness settles in, it's time to meet the Dark Mother.
The time of the Dark Mother occurs after the autumnal equinox-a time to reap what was sown in the spring and to harvest the bounty that summer brought. Traditional pagan rituals often included sheaves of wheat, apples, honey, nuts, and fruit. Join our floral manager, Juliet Hollifield, for a cozy morning of crafting at The Fernseed's South Tacoma location.
Meet at our Garage space facing South 54th street at 10am. In this ninety-minute workshop you will create your own unique autumnal wreath with methods including weaving, wiring, and gluing. Plus we will learn about traditional harvest rituals, the pagan goddesses that rule over the autumnal equinox, and the historical significance of some of the distinct symbolism we now associate with the season.
Materials to make your wreath: organic grapevine vase, assorted dried elements including dried foliage, grasses, wheat, fruits, etc., bind wire, glue, and all tools required.
