Event Details

Harmony flax bow is a Native American art practice passed down through generations which involves creating a unique and individual piece of art that is symbolic of the creators’ family or loved ones. The flax bow is created with the intention of bringing harmony and protection into the household and in this workshop you will learn how to create one.

The flax bow, or harmony bow, is a totem traditionally hung in homes to promote peace and togetherness within the family.

  • Flax bows are usually made from birch, willow, or grapevine and a loose flax cord, with gems and beads for decoration.
  • The wooden bow represents the roof of the home, and the strong flax is meant to hold the family together and channel their energy together through the stones.
  • Flax bows, like dream catchers, have become a popular piece of southwestern American decor and are still made in the traditional way by Native American artists.

This workshop is open to all ages. Children must bring an adult with them. All materials will be provided on the day but if you would to bring your own, please feel free. No experience or skills needed. This will be a practical session.
