Spring Equinox Gathering - Eco Dyeing & Nature Connection Walk
Spring Equinox Gathering - Ecodyeing and Nature Connection Walk.
Join us, Earthstar Magic & Ammie Plantwhisperer, as we gather in nature to welcome this significant point in the turning of the Wheel of the Year - Spring Equinox! This is the point in time when day is equal to night. A time for calling in balance, the second of the fertility festivals and a time when the natural world is buzzing with life and potential.
We will gather in nature, 10 mins outside of Creswick, Victoria to connect not only with this point in the Wheel, but also to connect in deeply with the landscape and natural environment. We will share a cosmic weather report with you, drawing attention to the seasons and cycles and what is happening astrologically at the time of our gathering.
You will then be guided through an eco dyeing process by Earthstar, where you will create a unique, one of a kind eco printed woven silk scarf using locally foraged plants and leaves. These scarves will hold the memory of our time together and this potent point in the wheel. We have the opportunity to look at this as a big spell crafting - what is it that we wish to call into our lives to bring balance?
The second part of our gathering is a guided nature connection walk with Ammie Plantwhisperer. You will explore the natural forest environment and discover the local flora and fauna, as well as information on how to cultivate a deeper connection with wild spaces.
We will then return to the campfire for a warm cuppa and some lunch (please BYO picnic) as well as more opportunities to share information and create connections before revealing our unique pieces of wearable art!
