Sacred Art- Raven and Crow: Feather Mobiles

February 2, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm



Ravens and crows (corvids) have long been associated with the dark and mysterious. Nephthys, The Morrigan, Baba Yaga and many other dark goddesses carry Raven as one of their symbols or forms. These birds are wickedly intelligent, curious and brazen.

In this class we will work with Raven and Crow. Discussing their symbolism, poetry and art. Corvids are plentiful and powerful in all cultures and carry very similar messages around the world. While we talk, we will make stunning twig mobiles dripping with English crow feathers beads and other amulets appropriate to your personal work with Raven.

“And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted—nevermore!”

From The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe

Michelle VanderHouwen is the owner of Oak and Hawthorn and provides the plant babies for Ritualcravt’s annual plant sale.

Throughout all her years, she has studied art as a window into Spirit and the psyche, and Nature has been her church. Michelle believes that our hands are magnificent communicators. When we let them dig, sculpt, draw, scrape, tie and sew, we are sending messages to and from Heart Center. Our hands, full of sensation but devoid of reasoning, can create pure, honest prayer. In Michelle’s classes she teaches, with a variety of tools, different ways of accessing Spirit using our hands and hearts. Her goal is to help us all access the knowing we had at birth. Michelle is deeply knowledgeable about the spiritual wisdom of nature, studied Shamanic Herbalism with Darcey Blue, and walks with the soul of a Witch.
