I first met them at Wed By Hand at the Glebe community center this fall. My friend Karie from Rehash who was also a vendor at the show told me about this couple getting married for free. I was like wow that is so cool and immediately felt the urge to donate. My donation was to host Jordan, Brian, family and friends at my house to make something for their wedding. They chose to make rosettes that they will place on tree branches and use as center pieces for their tables.
The workshop was help this past Wednesday and it was so much fun! Jordan`s friend who was also named `Annie Bananie` brought wine and snacks, I supplied hand felted orange and purple pieces of felt for the making of rosettes. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. For me these people were strangers but as I sat at the table stitching rosettes I felt a sense of community, friendship and love. I love giving these workshops as it always feels more and more like a gathering than a workshop. It`s a safe space to connect and it is through connecting to others that we connect to that deeper part of ourselves.
You can find a tutorial for these rosettes here.
Jordan and Brian, My wish for you is a long life of love and friendship. Thanks for giving me the honour of helping out and it was a pleasure hearing about your love story.
