This spring, a group of 20 women stepped into the wild for four Saturdays of intentional experience at FortWhyte Alive. Participants the spent four weeks creating, exploring and wildcrafting -- all in a tranquil natural setting.
Wildcrafters kicked off the four-week series with a bonfire and wild tea brew followed by a self-care workshop facilitated by Jodie Layne. Northlore Goods creator Natassia Brazeau led the group to wildcraft aspen buds, then create their very own salve to take home. The afternoon was rounded out with a serious session of everybody's new favourite activity: hatchet throwing! The following week, nationally recognized beading artist Jennine Krauchi introduced the group to the history and technique of Métis beadwork before the group headed outside to hone their bush skills. The series concluded with a calm, restorative lakeside yoga practice with Prairie Yogi Magazine's Rachelle Taylor.
While Wildcraft was the first series of its kind, be on the look out for more exciting programming from FortWhyte Alive this summer. Be sure to follow the journey on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to ensure early registration for limited programs.
