About this Event

-Fireside Foragers Basket Weaving Workshop-

We can accommodate any dietary requirements just let us know when you book. We will finish the feast with a seasonal cocktail and raise a toast to Ostara and the new life, before wandering through our beautiful site to do a spot of foraging ready for the guest craft workshop.

- Seasonal Celebrations-

Like a circus performer on a ferris wheel we have reached a point of perfect balance and contrast on our journey through the wheel of the year.

This is the season to celebrate the moon goddess Ostara (20th). There is harmony between the night and day as they equal in length in a perfect equilibrium of dark and light, masculine and feminine, a momentary balance in life that is to be treasured and celebrated.

Things will not remain like this for long though as light will eventually dampen the darkness and push her back, but it is this victory that summons the natural world to life. The sun is gaining in strength and the days are becoming longer and warmer. The secret pregnancy of the earth once so gently whispered is now proudly proclaimed as Imbolc is fulfilled and the abundant fertility of the Earth has begun. All the wishes cast last month are ready to be brought to life, there is a buzz in the air.

The birds are starting to tune up the dawn and the wild hares are leaping down from the moon each morning, with the goddess riding on their shoulders, ready to fight, as there is an uncontrollable lust in the spring air.
