Staffs are linked to the ancient Celtic belief of the power of trees. In order to understand how the ancients thought they worked, you first have to understand the significance of trees in their lives.
Please bring a staff with you from a fallen tree (try to identify the type of tree first) as well as anything from nature you are drawn to like feathers to decorate it with.
We will spend a little time exploring what the ancients believed was the distinct properties of each type of tree before moving on to create your own staff.
This workshop is free if you are not in full time employment or education and live on the Isle of Wight otherwise there will be a cost of ten pounds payable on the day.
