A 45 minute bookable Workshop, no under 3’s
Splendid Fairy Crowns were traditionally worn to celebrate the comings and goings of the seasons.
In this Workshop we show children how to make one to match the current season. Our Fairy Crowns look very striking and have proved popular with children, parents and other adults including visiting Mayors and other dignatories.
Fairy Crowns in a Medieval Fairyland Trust Tent
What each child and adult will experience
A plain willow withie circle is given to each child before hearing the story of Willow and Taran, two children who long ago were the first to learn the secret of how to make a real Fairy Crown. Using real leaves from various native trees children, start to build up the base of their Fairy Crown before being shown how to make tissue paper versions of native wildflowers currently in flower.
Each participant will learn to identify a variety of native trees commonly found in hedgerows, and which wildflowers or berries can be found at that time of year. Although this was once common knowledge, today it is rare to encounter young or indeed older people who have the gift of knowing the seasonality of flowers.
Children can receive an optional packet of wildflower seeds with a seasonal calendar postcard so that they can grow their own Fairy Crown ingredients at home ( extra 50p /child) .
