DEC 17 // SACRED SEASONAL WREATHS

85.00

11A - 2P

This class breaks the mold on wreath making. The look of our home and how we lovingly create protective boundaries on our front door changes through the seasons. Sierra Valley's Aurora Wellise will teach the art of adorning your home with personally symbolic, powerful and visually beautiful botanic wreaths. The spirit of the plant we decorate our hearth and home with will become as important as how it looks. Aurora will discuss elements of plant folklore as applied to honoring the seasons, protecting the home and creating sacred space through seasons and holidays. She will bring in examples of her current seasonal wreaths and plant materials including wild foraged boughs along with some organically grown flowers for added beauty. Students will be encouraged to add personal elements to their wreath! No experience necessary.

ABOUT AURORA WELLISE

I am enchanted by plants. They are beautiful, generous, playful, powerful, ancient healers. My fields of work and study have reflected this interest: anthropology and ethnobotany, design through heritage craft, farm to table restaurants, & holistic skin care. But even at its deepest, this only scratched the surface as it was mostly practical & academic. A few years ago, after moving to Sierra Valley, I was floored by the abundance of old, wise & deeply medicinal plants living in my very yard. I found that I could understand plant medicine directly from them, and that I could also reference this wisdom through scientific and herbal doctrine. It has since been my work and my passion to study plant medicine and to learn directly from plants. I literally live and breath plants, and have never been happier.

My company is called Lawless Botanics. I make herbal tea blends, tinctures, medicinal vinegars, smudge sticks, amulets, protective sacred wreaths and create practical rituals ways to honor ourselves, our ancestors and the natural world. My teaching is a growing edge joining our sacred and our secular lives.

“Plants are always honest, they never lie.” -Aurora Wellise
