Try out the age-old folk tradition of straw craft! ‘Mabon’ or the Autumn Equinox takes place on September 22 and marks the time of year when the amount of daylight and night-time is even - summer is over, autumn has begun, and it's time to bring in the crops. It is also a time of celebration, giving thanks and drawing family together as we prepare for the coming winter. Join artist CJ Shelton for this fun informative workshop and learn how to make your own harvest knot, also known as a corn dolly. Offer it as a love token to someone special or weave it with gratitude as you reflect on your own personal ‘harvest’.
