May 12-15: Brigid's Flame 4-day Intensive Metalsmithing Workshop
Offered by Priestess Devanna and her husband, master metalsmith Joshua, this 4-day intensive metalsmithing workshop offers students the opportunity to make their own talismanic jewelry in honor of the goddess Brigid, the Celtic triple goddess of healing, smithcraft, and song.
In this workshop students will learn basic metalsmithing techniques to create three personal talismans, explore the elemental magic of smithcrafting, and participate in rituals each day to deepen their experience, all while immersed in the lore and lessons of Brigid. A closing dinner on Sunday to celebrate the achievements of the workshop is included in the workshop cost.
