Gather around our fire pit to ignite your creativity. Experience deep aura cleansing & wonder at nature’s power through incredible colour reactions as you carry out your own traditional ceramic pit-firings. - Upon arrival to your session Elsa will cleanse your aura using a sacred tool of your choosing. This will be a deeply intimate experience for each individual, allowing you to settle in to our space. - Elsa will teach all about creating a sacred space, leading onto a 20 minute guided meditation focused on the element of fire. - Elsa will then show you the slow craft of creating ritual tools using foraged herbs, plants and wild flowers. We will invite and seal intentions whilst we create together. - Tash will introduce you to the art of ceramics, teaching you how to hand pinch clay into a dish to hold your slow crafted herbal bundle. You will experience the importance of exploring with the material- channeling freedom, re-connecting with your inner child & igniting innate creativity. - This session is all about unleashing the elements & experiencing for yourself the incredible reactions between the fire element, natural materials & clay! Tash will introduce you to how the fire element has brought us the functional ceramics that we use today. She will share with you the ancient firing methods, explain ‘oxidisation’ & ‘reduction’ environments, & how natural materials were used to create functional, decorative pieces. - Tash will show you different natural materials & explain how these can be used to colour ceramics in exciting reactions between the flames. You will be able to choose your own materials to colour ceramics & bind them into the pieces. - You & your fellow group members will then begin to build your own ceramic pit-fire to carry out the ancient firing process and experience the oxidising colour reactions yourself! - You will do as the ancient civilisations did, experimenting with natural materials like dried grasses & fruits to colour your ceramic pieces through exciting chemical reactions in the fire. - As your pieces burn in the embers, Elsa will serve you a warming drink. - Elsa will close the evening with a closing meditation. Your ceramic pieces will be ready for you to collect or have delivered 3-5 days after the session. This session will be weather dependant. If weather is not permitting we will simply move you to an alternative day.
