A new series of workshops at Moth Studios, celebrating the wheel of the year. We will be creating and hosting a workshop to celebrate each and every change of the season…
In this one, we will create a symbolic & celebrational wreath or wall hanging (it up to you what shape and size!) using foliage and crafts to celebrate the the elements of sun & fire. Also called “Litha”.
Litha is Midsummer or the Summer Solstice, Most cultures of the Northern Hemisphere mark Midsummer in some ritualised manner and from time immemorial people have acknowledged the rising of the sun on this day. At Stonehenge, the heelstone marks the midsummer sunrise as seen from the centre of the stone circle. Agriculturally, the crops are in full growth. They are reaching the pinnacles of maturity and coming closer to the harvest time. Most wild herbs are fully mature by Midsummer and this is the traditional time for gathering magickal and medicinal plants to dry and store for winter use.
