About This Class

Weave a Magical Lavender Wand

With an odd number of fresh lavender stems, two yards of 1/4" double-faced lavender ribbon and 30-45 minutes, you will be able to weave a fragrant lavender wand.

Weave along with me as you transform those stems into a Magical Lavender Wand. I designed the videos so that you can complete each step along the way. Pause, finish the step, then proceed to the next video. 

***BREAKING NEWS*** Start your project now! We'll be giving away all six wands made during the video sessions for this class. Next drawing will be held on August 13.

Grow Your Own Lavender!

I've also included two documents that will help you if you are not already growing lavender. The first answers the top ten questions asked about growing lavender. 

The second document has my recommendations for the varieties that produce the best stems for weaving lavender wands.

This is how a class should be taught. Each video should display a step so you can work along with the video and complete the step before moving on to the next. A fantastic teacher.

Susan...the Lavender Grower

After 20+ years in small business management working for others, I quit my real job to grow lavender for a living. That was 2002.

The 150 lavender plants at Labyrinth Hill produce approximately 300 bundles of fresh lavender and 50 pounds of dried lavender annually. My current challenge is to find a variety of creative ways to use and share all that lavender!

The Labyrinth Hill files are filled with recipes, hints and tips on growing and using lavender. It's time to share that knowledge and help you discover the joy of the genus Lavandula aka lavender!

My painting exploration is about the journey, not the destination.

The more I worked with technology while marketing the lavender, the more I yearned for access to the creative side of my brain. An unexpected gift of a watercolor class in 2010 launched a personal artistic journey that has brought surprises and joy. 

The simple process of brushing paint on paper is almost as meditative and calming as the lavender.
