Sacred Art- Herbs/Botanical Drawing and Garden Planning
March 15 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$35.00
By the middle of March Michelle’s basement is full of grow lights and seedlings for the annual RitualCravt Plant Sale. But keeping all of that plant magic to herself is unfair. Michelle will bring in some tiny plant babies for us to sit with while we discuss witchy gardens and how best to begin planning one (or adding to flourishing or struggling plots). In addition to lots of plant talk, you will get a crash course in botanical drawing; how best to discover and capture the essence of a plant on paper. All participants will leave with the beginnings of a rough plant witch journal/grimoire… notes and sketches which will surely have muddy fingerprints added to them by Summer’s end.
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.
