Making a Memory Book/Nature Journal
Make a simple twenty page book using a 3- or 5-station pamphlet stitch. Decorate a cover for it with stencils, stamps, or your own art. Use it as a memory book, a nature journal, or to take notes throughout the weekend. Intended Audience: Everyone.
Bibbity Bobbity Boo! Create a tool to direct your magical energy. Choose a stick to use as a base, then we will decorate the wand and attach a crystal to the tip (if you so desire).
Disclaimer: no fairy godmother included!
Set your intent and create a piece of magical jewelry out of clay. A variety of tools and techniques will be available to make your medallion unique. We will bake them.
Create a set of 13 witches runes to use as your personal divination tool. Stamp, paint, or burn the runes onto wood slices, then make a bag to store them.
Hear a traditional story about how dream catchers came to be. Then create your own (non-traditional) dream catcher to take home.
