Medicine Animals

group_3-18-09GRASONVILLE, MD – Wednesday morning –  OMG! We had THE most fun this morning at the Wye River Designs Studio! Candace Jedrowicz taught her Medicine Animals class and we had a blast!  She started off the class with a guided meditation where we got to “meet” our own medicine animal. We then learned the spiritual message that our animals bring to us and then we crafted our animals from Kato Polyclay

lisa_bunny_3-18-09Once wecandace_snake_3-18-09 were able to let go of our pre-conceived notions of what we thought the animal should look like, then we really got in to some creative expression.  And, we didn’t stop with just one animal – sister Candace made a snake and a squirrel (but she kept calling him a woodchuck), Lisa made a dragonfly, rabbit and bat plus a moon tocandace_squirrel_3-18-09 pair with her dragonfly which she is going to turn into an aromatherapy neckace, I made two bears (although tiffany_bears_3-18-09my large bear looks more like a buffalo which represents prayer and abundance so that’s OK by me!) After baking our works of art in our toaster oven, we finished them off with small shells and semi-precious stones secured with a dab of Aleene’s Platinum Bond Glass & Bead glue and several wraps of thread.

Our thanks to Candace J for guiding us through this fabulous class and for her patience while we fussed trying to make them perfect! We LOVE them! And Lisa, you’re a natural at this so we expect to see a lot more creative clay work from you!

We’d love to see you at our next Medicine Animal class! >>Creative kisses & hugs, Tiffany
