Every winter we aim to create and offer a special winter bundle that contains elements of the cold lands and the ancestry of ice, gathered into images, songs, stories and special hand-crafted items. This winter Cedar has drawn on the Arctic-Dartmoor events that she organised in the autumn to put together a beautiful box of winter magic, complied from her own work as well as that of Nina Norvall Vahlberg, Gun Hofgaard and Carolyn Hillyer. We have only ten of these bundles available – they are limited to the number of bear totems that we have from the Arctic. Each winter bundle contains:
THE REINDEER ROAD – photographic hardback book of images from the Siberian tundra taken during the Nadym Nenets and Khanti Peoples’ Reindeer Festival – Cedar Shaw
TUNDRA MOUNTED PRINT – photo image from the Reindeer Road book, 10 x 12 inches – Cedar Shaw
TUNDRA POSTCARDS – set of four photo images from the Siberian tundra – Cedar Shaw
CEREMONIAL BEAR FAT BALM or SOAP – traditional Arctic recipe for ceremonial ingredients using brown bear fat from Sámi community. You will receive either a piece of bear soap or a small pot of bear balm. For use in prayer, healing or ritual – Gun Hofgaard, Arctic drum maker and craftswoman
ALBUM OF SÁMI YOIK SONGS – traditional and original songs from the Arctic using yoiking traditions – Nina Norvall Vahlberg, Sámi musician and cultural teacher
MOONING THE BEAR – a story for deep winter hibernation, printed onto brown craft paper, from her Book of Hag – Carolyn Hillyer, Dartmoor musician and writer

The contents of the bundle are valued at £80 plus £5.50 postage – we are offering these boxes for £70 including UK postage.
