Hi thanks for asking….
Why the artisan celebrant? An artisan is a skilled craftsperson, someone who creates something unique and special. It implies handcrafted, beautifully finished. It’s like touching the hands of the maker.
Ever since I can remember I have wanted to create. As a kid with paper origami, as a teen with performance in stage musicals, as an adult with words as a teacher and storyteller, with clay as a sculptor and clarinet as a musician. Some of my creations include a large sculptural temple on a lake, a huge inflatable whale, a kingfisher puppet, costumes, flags, and tiny hearts.
These days I manage to combine all my creative skills in being a celebrant. It is interesting what one draws on to create a unique ceremony. Ceremony is about touching the feelings within. I tap into the realm of feelings via this creativity.
And what you want, is for your guests to believe that your celebrant has always been a good friend; a friend who knows you, and can warmly invite your guests into a story woven about you.
