Sacred Art-Pen Crafting With Muses
August 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$40.00
Since antiquity, artists, writers, thinkers and performers have invoked the Muses for inspiration. The Muses are nine in number and can be found within Greek mythology. Each one specializes in specific spheres of artistry and their influence is traditionally utilized in the creation of art. Invoking their power can help break creative-blocks and problem solving around artwork. They may also guide us into new areas and methods of expression.
Within sacred space we will build nib pens and then use them as the Muses guide our hands in a series of intuitive writing practices. You will leave with a beautiful, handcrafted pen, created and consecrated within our circle. Offered by Ritualcravt teachers Samuel McCabe and Michelle Vanderhouwen.
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.
