That’s a wrap on our wreath classes this season! Thank you to the over 200 students who attended class this year through our private classes, team workshops, and our sliding scale public and career student workshop. These are a few beautiful samples from students: Janine, Jennifer, Anna and Patricia. Merry Christmas!🌿🌿🌿
Making wreaths has proved grounding during this time and I’ve loved bringing this joy, nature, and crafting time to so many people this year. I am going to offer one public live wreath class this season, on December 16th at 9 am PST. In this wreath class, we’ll be covering the technique around a classical style wreath in a compostable method. Feel free to just show up with the supplies you have to enjoy making a wreath with a group.
You can sign up here. Entry is free for all career students. Entry fee is sliding scale, pay what you can. Recipe and supplies below.
Please don’t stop calling for a ceasefire right now, every day that you are able. Easy and quick action points here. If you miss a day, start again the next day. I am fighting with you!❤️

There’s no business as usual for me as long as the US keeps sponsoring this genocide and dehumanizing Palestinians. I believe in a free palestine and the end to the occupation so that all people can live peacefully but right now I am fighting for the bare minimum which is a ceasefire. Even if we disagree on how we move forward, I think every human with a heart can see that the US-sponsored killing in Gaza is not effective for bringing hostages home nor is it proportional or strategic. I believe, as many experts have written, that we are witnessing a genocide. I am not interested in waiting around until enough people are killed for it to be the exact definition.
We can disagree on a path forward, on the framing of history, but violence is not the answer. This violence is INCREASING Antisemitism and Islamophobia. It’s only making our countries more volatile and unsafe. Liberation for one is liberation for all.
I don’t like using words about violence on my blog or. newsletters. I am fighting for a ceasefire and I invite you to do the same.
