Featured Workshop

Winter Solstice

1-part workshop
Thursday, December 21, 6-8 pm

The winter solstice gives us a time to reflect on the symbols and language of longer days, a return to warmth, and themes of fire, light, community, survival, and hope. This writing workshop will explore the history and meanings behind different pagan winter solstice traditions, folktales, myths, and spells. Participants will take inspiration from this history to write our own winter solstice tales, myths, memories, and maybe even spells. We'll also delve into a little winter-themed tarot used for winter solstice storytelling and create our own special winter solstice hand-built notebook or start to a tarot deck.

This workshop is a continued collaboration with the SLCC Publication Center.

Cost: $15. Registration is required.

Location: CWC, 210 East 400 South #8.
