What a lovely time together for Candle-making & Crafting! A nurturing flow, joyful interactions, and sharing.
Candle dipping was mellow, with gentle music in the background. Some experimented with the wax: A SPIRAL CANDLE, Sculpted candles, in the shape of a PYRAMID, a BALL, a BEAR! And creativity flowing with the COB Candle Holders & sculptures! A TREE decorated with colored berries, Pinecone pieces as a repeated decoration. And so many other explorations as well as the simple, smooth tapered candles. Ah.
Two previous intern, Claudia and Elise, from last years ‘ month-long Winternship came to the class, and we got to connect and catch up a bit. I am so delighted that the group has stayed in touch with each other.
There were folks new to the Strawbale Studio, and that was sweet, to get to know them a bit. They toured themselves around the Strawbale Studio, and got a sense of the place. Melanie’s daughter is in a Waldorf-inspired homeschooling group. Michaela teaches art…and uses art to teach other subjects in a playful way to youth! Monique, loves nature, studies herbs with Jim McDonald, harvested wild rice!
The conversation was rich …as folks shared …working at a community garden, teaching young people from Detroit, using art as a way to teach other subjects, Much weaving, and overlapping and enjoyment during the process of crafting, candle-making and having lunch.
