winter weaving

in Cape Cod,kids

This weekend, Oliver and I headed to Marnie’s for a foraging expedition. Our objective was to collect whatever we found and weave it.

We set out without any real preconceived notions of what we were looking for or what we wanted the outcome to be. Instead it was an extemporaneous exercise, designed to get us out into nature and experiment with our findings. The results were secondary. This time, it was the process that was important.

So beautiful…from the winter walk, to tea, to lesson, to the wonderful wreaths and weaving.
