Inspiration ⚡️ The Maids of Elfen-Mere by Dante Gabriel Rossetti 🔶 carrying on from the story of Isobel Gowdie and the tales of the faerie witches #dantegabrielrossetti #faeriewitch #spindles #distaff

I dressed one of my distaffs in preparation for going to a reenactment tomorrow. This is the lightest pole style distaff I have. I'll use it walking around and if I have stand as a retainer for my Baron and Baroness tomorrow. I used a fancy veil pin to secure the band that holds the fiber to the pole. The pole in this case is a long stick of ash wood. I'm also bringing the distaff that I have dressed with flax. I have a stand for it so I can spin while seated. The event is being held at Ridley Creek State Park, PA so there will be regular folk about. I make a great looking display. #SCA #societyforcreativeanachronism #distaff #spinning #bhakail

The Original Cannabis Caroler's of Christmas Eve
_

Snuggled up in layers of warmth, out into the cold the joyous crowd goes with hot chocolate or cider's in hand.

_

Hopping from house to house stopping to sing to bring joy and spirit to all who hear!

_

Christmas Caroling is steeped in tradition with the holiday season, of course most wouldn't guess what is responsible for starting such a joyous tradition?

_

That's right, Hemp!

_

In Pagan times, area's encompassing present day Lithuanian, Poland, Germany and Russia celebrated the Slavic holiday of Koleda.  Koleda was celebrated around Christmas time celebrating the god Koliada who is a Slavic pagan deity symbolized by the weak winter Sun that is reborn the morning after the winter solstice(December 22). _

On the Eve of Koleda, a sacred rite would be performed called Koleduvane.  Unmarried young men suit up dressed as 'Koledari', costumes ranging from demons to goats, venturing into the night.
_

Dressed as a pregnant woman 'Bride' is the main character in this wild troop. She symbolizes both the death of the old moon and birth of the new.  Still no hemp, here it comes... _

Bride, as the center of the show, would be seated on a wooden hemp breaker. The Koledari would carry the Hemp Breaker as if Bride was riding a horse from house to house.

_

Thats right, a hemp breaker horse!

_

Not enough hemp, Bride seated on top of the hemp breaker horse, would be spinning hemp to thread using a distaff.

_

The whole group would venture out on Koleda eve at midnight, traveling house to house with a lively spirit.  Knocking on the door, the group would burst out into special Koledo song's!

_

After some singing and dancing out front, the Koledari would then tear through the house searching for evil spirits that are hiding in the home... _

Finding the evil spirits, the koledari would chase them from the home ensuring a bountiful harvest in the coming year.

_

With the evil spirits chased away from the home, the homeowners would give the group some heckled hemp fiber's for their service... _

When those joyous carolers knock on your door, you can smile knowing it's Hemp that has brought them all there!

8 декабря по народному календарю Клим Холодный.
В Климентьев день любое важное дело начинали только натощак.
Этот обычай был связан с продолжнением молотьбы: заниматься этой работой на сытый желудок было неудобно, движения становились тяжёлыми.
Женщины же на Клима садились прясть у окна - от белого снега в избе становилось светлее.
На фото сувенирная самопрялка советского периода, получена в дар.

Distaff by Juana Gomez- so inspiring. Distaff is a fanciful word that beautifully captures the elements of this work. I have been reminded lately of the importance of women in my family and ancestry and so this work is especially timely for me. #distaff #lookitup in a #dictionary it's called #academic #curiosity kids and you can take that to the #bank #Repost @juana_gomez_m (@get_repost)

20 ноября по народному календарю Федотов день.
На Федота крестьянки в российских деревнях начинали прясть, а перед началом работы обращались к святому с молитвой о помощи в труде, поскольку считали его покровителем женского рукоделия.
В это время на реках и озёрах вставал лёд.
Наши предки подмечали: "Федот лёд ведёт".

Fan bird from Slovenia and a Distaff from Albania. Why,well Christmas is on the way and I wanted to make a Fan bird and here is my inspiration a magnificent example of this Eastern European tradition.The Distaff was just in the shot but good crack if you like this type of carving. Now to cut me some pine. #fanbird #handcarving #distaff #slovenianfanbird #slovenia #albania

Does this proverb make any sense to you? Any idea how a "distaff" can be a symbol of hard work and spiritual readiness? If not, check out the explanation on the Whole Cloth blog (link in bio)

So pleased with @craftyjaks carded rovings. They are perfect for dressing my distaff. #spinnersofinstagram #spinning #distaff #spindlespinning #handspinners #handspunyarn #handspun #handspinner

Juana Gomez is a Chilean artist that works interweaving tradition, colours and thoughts. ‘Distaff’ is her first solo exhibition in London and is curated by Carolina Castro.

Using black & white photography and embroidering, she connects her ‘distaff’ side to science and philosophy, reflecting beyond herself, she links and analyses the universal patrons in nature and society.

For her “We do not only inherit the colour of our eyes. We inherit a rich history.’ Her learnt to embroider from her grandmother and now she uses that technique as one of the main resources in her work.

The embroidering, as tradition present in her family or distaff, interacts with the photography as nervous system and organic forms shaping life and the connections present in it, like nerve impulses and bloodstreams.

In this sense, works as a device of memory transmission through little gestures that in its repetition helps her to compose and discuss something more complex beyond her skin. In the process, she passes the needle through the skin of four generations of her family including herself as a way of connecting and healing the feminine side, showing us the invisible part under their skins.

The little gesture and repetitive act involved in the technic, implies a trance where she heals and reconnects different layers and generations, ‘I repeat patterns so as not to forget, I embroider to continue these memory lines that must not be lost’. When she sewing, she re-constructs a more complex language reflected in the links between people, tradition, science and nature: emerges the recognition of the universality and differences, observable in the nervous systems, trees and circuits.

You can see ‘Distaff’ in London until December 22nd at Michael Hoppen Gallery in collaboration with @isabelcroxattogaleria (SCL)

It’s always a thrill to attend a photographic art exhibition and totally fall in love with every piece of art (and the artist herself) I was moved to tears by this exhibition at @michaelhoppengallery #distaff by the wonderful @juana_gomez_m ..hours of needlework went into each piece ..showing until Dec 22nd #michaelhoppengallery #artgallerylondon #londonphotography #chilenartist #londonculture #chelsealondon #juanagomez #stylevice #needlework #embroidery #photographicexhibition

The reemergence of the Goddess is imminent! I bought this piece in Glastonbury a few years ago. Bask in the beauty of the Triple Goddess. In Arabia they are known as Al-Uzza, Al-Lat & Menat.

Happy Saturday! Anyone else watch The Breeder’s Cup Distaff yesterday? Forever Unbridled stole the show! What a great race. She’s an amazing Mare. It’s chilly outside today so I’ve thrown on my most comfy sweater to walk the dogs 🐕 who are more like horses 🐎 and think they’re lap dogs 😳. And then I’m back in to cuddle up and watch the rest of the races at Del Mar. .

Forever Unbridled holds off the late rush from Able Tasman to capture the @breederscup . Let's hope that history repeats itself. Mike Smith came up short last year in the Distaff and won the Classic with Arrogate!!! #eversphoto #eswphot #bc17 #breederscup #delmar #sandiego #sports #horseracing #coolmore #picoftheday #photography #photooftheday #horse #horses #equine #equestrian #jockey #distaff

When you know that Mike Smith and Abel Tasman are back there... somewhere. #BC17 #BreedersCup #Distaff

These are so cool, decorative distaffs used in Finnish spinning wheels 😍 #museum #distaff #culturecrafts #inspiration #colourlove #colourhealing #pattern #spinyourlife #magic

Celebrating life and wonder.
Inspired by the threads of old.

For long I was in doubt wether I could use skulls or bones as a surface to create art on.
But I feel that as long as I am aware of it's spirit and repurpose their leftovers to honor their life...And to remind others that we are part of something sacred, natural and larger than ourselves, I am willing to work with them. (Though always paying attention to work with either vintage or animal cruelty free options!)

Freyja with distaff, brisingamen and falcon cloak. Sold.

I got a beautiful distaff from Serbia. The shaft and mirror broke in the mail :( but everything is fixable. I just love these two birds. #distaff #Serbia #folkart #distaffandspindle
