We will use haptic magic to feel our way through the longest night. Using homemade air-drying clay to make a vessel we will each create an individual spell, learning basic ways to introduce the elements and ideas into your practice through physical forms. Blue will create a unique soundscape for you to download and listen to on your journey.
You’ll be sent instructions on how to make your clay beforehand along with the elements you will need for your spell which may be foraged, from the garden or herbs and spices from your kitchen. The magic and intention begin with the preparation, choosing what to use, responding to items that ground, relax and excite. Responding to smell, colour or texture. Tuning into your depths.
Workshop open to all. No experience of clay making required.
For homemade air-drying clay
