This Summer we got caught up in a beautiful collaborative web at the Renaissance Faire. The Faire's collaborative webs were strung between trees with simple, white string. Visitors and Renaissance residents tied and wove leaves, sticks, pieces of yarn, lost pacifiers, and broken bits to the webs. Over the course of the Summer, the webs caught more and more magic. It was a delight to experience, and immediately I knew that I wanted to try something similar at Spring Bird. So, this past Monday, with the help of cousin Austen, we strung up a web, and I tied on its first bits of magic. I am hoping that over the course of the next months, it will collect more and more pieces of wonder as it becomes a collaborative forest art project! I imagine feathers, notes, twigs, pinecones, and more tied up in the web. Next time you come to Spring Bird, make sure you come and find and add to it!
