Ancestral Skills Weekend in Tollymore Forest
Join Lucy for a night under the stars in Tollymore Forest, nestled in the foothills of the Mourne Mountains, and delve deep into the skills of our ancestors.
Over the course of the weekend, we will explore a diversity of nature-based skills which will invite you to feel more at home in nature, as well as tapping into our ancient roots and cultivating a sense of belonging in the community of the more-than-human world. As the ancient festival of Samhain approaches, and the fungi and nuts litter the forest floor, you will explore what it feels like to reawaken your ancestral muscle memory and welcome deep nature connection into your life.
We will explore:
-Wild foods and medicines
-Wildlife tracking and awareness activities
-Cordage and bindings
-Burn out spoons
-Storytelling and singing
