All materials are inclusive, including feathers, natural hide & coloured, crystals, beads etc..
You are also welcome to bring you special feather or decorative element if you have some to include in your creation.  
Duration of the workshop 2 hr.        Investment: $55
 
Meaning of Feathers
The Meaning of Feathers plays an important role in the awareness of many cultures. Most understanding embodies the spiritual idea that all natural things within the universe, including birds have spirits forms. That spirit exist, not only in humans, but also in birds (they imprint their fluidal energy onto their feathers) and in animals, plants,  and all living beings. The doctrine is that everything is alive, and possesses an inherent virtue, power and wisdom.
The generalized meaning of feathers signified honour & connected the carrier with the Creation and the bird whose feathers came from. Feathers are perceived as gifts from the sky, the sea and the trees. Feathers arrive unexpectedly, but not without purpose.
 
Birds were revered as bringers of messages and symbols of change and often symbolized light-hearted freedom, their feathers have many spiritual, ceremonial & ritual uses. Decorated feathers were sometimes attached to sacred objects and tools, in the ancient culture and traditions of First Nations the meaning of feathers are inextricably tied to the understanding that birds, as spirit guides, appear through different stages of life to a person, teaching and guiding them, and in some instances protecting them.
The meaning of birds and their feathers are of great significance as they are considered to possess Creational energetic powers that can embody, attach and influence a person, empowering them with the powerful traits, attributes and characteristics of the bird. 
 
At the duration of this workshop we will also discus meanings of birds and observe information of the significance of each bird’s attributes and symbolism. Also learn about the purpose, teachings and proper ways of ‘smudging’ and handling sacred objects. 
All ages are invited to attend this fun feather crafting afternoon at
