About the event

A Fundraiser for the SSI Farmland Trust Society

Join us to celebrate the harvest season with traditional wheat weaving and storytelling. We'll learn some basic weaving techniques including the five straw ribbon plait, a Welsh Sweetheart house blessing, and a Harvest Mother design based on the Bridey doll from the book The Spirited Kitchen. We’ll appreciate and honour local agriculture by using oats and wheat grown locally.

Each registration comes with a copy of The Spirited Kitchen: Recipes and Rituals for the Wheel of the Year.   (If you already own a copy, it makes a great gift!)

Light refreshments will be served; in full sumptuous style that Carmen offers with sincere generosity!

This event will take place in the barn at The Root with all the doors open, however, masks are still encouraged.
